You could also add about 1/2 cup chopped cilantro and a little crumbled queso fresco or feta cheese.

Ceviche is a nice change but depends on whether it fits with the rest of your menu. Here's an easy Shrimp & Avocado Ceviche from Martha Stewart:

A Mexican chopped salad with Lime & Cilantro Dressing might work well.

I also was going to suggest a salad using a cilantro lime vinaigrette! I'd use some romaine lettuce (chopped like for a chopped salad), thin sliced radishes, raw carrots, queso fresco and some charred corn. Some fried tortilla crisps could be added at the end to act as the croutons.

Rick Bayless has a whole chapter on Mexican inspired salads in "Mexican Everyday". Our favorite is the chayote salad. My wife wants it at least once a week. We use a bottled balsamic vinaigrette, so there are only 4 ingredients to prep.

shredded cabbage is pretty traditional. i always liked a citrus medallion salad as it also lends a cooling effect if food is spicy hot. a light cumin dressing is good.
