Healthy appetizer: Fresh and Tasty Conch Ceviche ~Ceviche de Caracol for all occasion.
It is spring or is it still winter? Well, it does not really matter down south in Florida as we have wonderful weather all year round. What makes it even better is the colorful fruits and vegetables we have that makes our table setting so remarkable and beautiful. Fresh From Florida fruits and veggies colors perks up the appetite for me! At this time of the year, I enjoy a Tasty and Fresh Conch Ceviche ~Ceviche de Caracol with multiple colors of the sweet peppers and other colorful veggies at this time of the year.
We brought some produce to make some of our favorite meals for the weekend. There is so much we can make with these products which you can find at Fresh From Florida website. My family enjoys eating the colorful sweet peppers by itself but added with a seafood, it is even more flavorful.
As I was browsing in the supermarket, I was surprised to see one of my favorite seafood which I purchased and decided to make some conche ceviche which I have been craving.

It is awesome to see our the farmers hard word and loving care being flaunted at the marketplace. I know it is hard work to see these wonderful produce. I don’t have the patience at times with my herbs and to tend to all these produce. I don’t think we give the credit to what we have to eat on our table. HATS off to these wonderful and graceful farmers for giving us these beautiful produce for our table. Really, it is humbling to see the hard work.
