Great for soup and a sandwich.

Top Review by Mary Ann Nelson E.

I grew up and lived many years in a Florida city with a large Cuban population. Traditional Cuban sandwiches use ordinary, yellow salad mustard, include only about half as much pork as ham and add sliced, sandwich dills. As with all foods, nothing is written in stone, but sometimes traditional recipes are the best.
