Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Gently toss tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, onion, cucumber, and avocado together in a large bowl.

  • Mix orange juice, olive oil, cilantro, and lemon juice in a small bowl; drizzle over tomato mixture and toss to coat. Season mixture with salt and pepper.

  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Cook's Note:

You can use lime juice in place of lemon juice, if preferred.

The fresh mozzarella is a wonderful substitute for vegetarians and those who do not like, or have allergies to, fish and shellfish.

Make sure to choose ripe avocados; the citrus juice will stop them from browning.

Light and refreshing mix of textures and flavours. I was worried about the mozzarella in citrus so I ate it immediately instead of letting it sit. This serves nicely with some tortilla chips. I added some hot peppers and bean sprouts. Ceviche flavours for those of us who can't eat fish! Thank you Traceya822 for sharing your recipe. Update 28/4 I made this with tofu instead of mozzarella and it was delicious! Makes for nice vegan meal! Read More
