I was flipping through some cookbooks and cooking magazines and stumbled upon this recipe: Ceviche with Tuna, Cucumber, and Orange. Unfortunately I did not have oranges, but I did have strawberries, frisée, and some other ingredients so I came up with my own version for dinner. I love the simplicity, color, and combination of flavors and textures. Perfect for a summer meal! Enjoy! 🙂
