Cauliflower ceviche is served atop a toasted corn tortilla and topped with sliced avocado. This is a light and refreshing appetizer or entree. Unlike my previous cauliflower ceviche recipe, I have omitted the hot sauce and jalapeno from this recipe. Instead, I am allowing people to add hot sauce to their individual tostadas as they like. The total cost of this recipe is $8.15 or about $0.68 per tostada.
