Ceviche with Pink Grapefruit and Green Olives


I grew up in Bristol, Rhode Island, with some Portuguese neighbors who introduced me to ceviche early. With the theme this week this recipe jumped into my head. As yet another storm begins, I take heart that I can make this even if we loose power. I love using the snow as the background for the finished dish here!
