Vegetarian ceviche has become a mainstay on our South American courses and Vegetarian Diploma courses, and this Spring edition is no exception. Our spring asparagus ceviche is a quick-to-make raw Spring salad with a zesty lemon and tarragon ceviche dressing. This recipe was featured in the May 2016 issue of Vegetarian Living Magazine.

Method

  1. Prepare the salad vegetables. Double pod the broad beans. Trim the asparagus and carrots and peel down the length into strips. Peel the fennel into thin slices. Place the peeled vegetables into a bowl of ice cold water to crisp and curl. Slice the radishes and mange tout.
  2. To make the dressing, mix together the white wine vinegar, lemon juice, sugar and salt and add in the chopped tarragon and lemon zest.
  3. Drain the sliced vegetables and place them all together in a bowl. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and mix to coat them.
  4. Arrange the vegetables on the plates or onto one large sharing plate. Garnish with tarragon leaves.
  5. Serve straight away.
