Tropical Vegan Ceviche & Tangy Tofu

SUMMER I can taste you.

If Tulum, Mexico was a dish it would be this.

Just looking at it and tasting it makes me feel like I am lying on a white sand beach looking out at turquoise waters with salty wind in my hair wearing the cutest damn bikini ever. Yeah, just like that.

Think: sweet, tangy, umami, chewy, crunchy and crisp!

Seriously it hits all the right notes. And its vegan

Everything about this recipe is literally perfection and I am not just saying that because I made it. I’ve had my fair share of kitchen fails #noshame. This one however is a real winner.

Although it is very theraputic for me and I LOVE creating this blog its also something I do to inspire and connect with others. So thank you. That last post was lengthy and the fact that many of you took the time to read it and comment moves and surprises me in the best way.

Something I’ve learned over the years of salad making is that salad dressing can make or break your salad so I have made a conscious effort to start spending more time developing salad dressing from scratch instead of from the jar like I used to. The dressing for this salad has so many wonderful notes in it: a little bite of spiciness from the red pepper, rich nutty warmth from the sesame oil, a touch of sweetness from the maple syrup and a bright tangy kick from the lime juicy.
