I came across a very nice raw coconut ceviche salad a few days ago on FullyRaw. Kristina is absolutly amazing, i recomend checking out her YouTube Chanel FullyRawKristina for amazing recipes.
I made few changes to the original recipe: swaped some vegetables and marinated the coconut meat with lime, mint parsley, to give more flavours to the salad. This ceviche is super fresh and on …. hot summer days, ideal for any occasion!
