Ceviche Verde

Ceviche Verde

A great refreshing light meal, snack or appetizer.

Ceviche Verde means green ceviche. The original recipe calls for only green tomatillos (they add great flavor!) but I also like to add a handful of chopped red tomatoes for a pop of color.

Makes about 4 snack or appetizer servings.


  • 14 oz. can hearts of palm
  • ½ cup green olives, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • ½ cup tomatillo, chopped
  • 1-2 limes, juiced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 jalapeño, finely chopped or sliced (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 medium to large avocado, diced
  • optional: chopped cherry tomatoes and extra cilantro for garnish


  1. Cut hearts of palm into ½ inch cubes and place in medium bowl.
  2. Add all other ingredients except avocado and stir to combine. Start with the juice of one lime, tasting and adding more if desired. Let rest for 30 minutes to 2 hours for flavors to combine.
  3. Before serving, add diced avocado, stirring gently to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings.  Garnish with tomato and cilantro if desired. Serve with veggie chips or tortilla chips.
