Garden Vegetable Ceviche

Bring a taste of Belize into your own home with this wonderful garden vegetable ceviche recipe

While all of the food on our recent trip to Belcampo Belize was out-of-this-world delicious, one dish particularly stands out, and it just happens to be one we order daily — the garden vegetable ceviche. 

The vegetables used in the dish may change depending on what is fresh, but the ceviche is always delicious. I see it as a side dish at home instead of a salad, but it works equally well as an appetizer or a main course with a salad. Your choice!

This recipe is courtesy of Chef Renee of Belcampo Belize.
