Author Notes

This is one of my Dad's pride and joys. During the summer at BBQs at his house he would make this for anyone who loved ceviche...he doesn't cook much now... so it's my turn. Super simple with few ingredients, but oh so good! —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
