When I think of summer, I think of refreshing, crunchy, aromatic, and overwhelmingly colorful salads. Thankfully, my body craves these water-filled foods as the temperature starts to rise, so my compulsive food-buying is always put to good use in the enormous salad bowls I like to eat.
As easy as making a summer salad is, however, people tend to get in the habit of using the same ingredients or ways of making them over and over again, until their signature salad gets old and boring, and they don't want to eat another bite of it for the rest of their lives. In fact, many people don't know that preparing this simple dish can be as creative a process as cooking any other thing. Here I will show you how to make a salad that will take you out of your routine. In this recipe I've turned my salad into a ceviche using all the seasonal ingredients I could find.
