From a recipe site about El Salvador. I haven't tried this yet, but can't wait to!
- 1 head cabbage
- 1 1⁄2 cups white vinegar
- 2 carrots
- 1 medium onion
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon chili pepper
- Chop/shred cabbage, carrots and onion.
- Place in large mixing bowl.
- Add vinegar and spices.
- Push cabbage under liquid with spoon, until it is all covered.
- Allow to sit at room temperature for 6 hours before serving.
Excellent side dish to serve with fish. I found it a bit sharp so added 1 tsp Splenda. I poured off the vinegar before serving. This is a do again recipe Thanks Sudie
I love curtido--it goes great with papusas! Yummy
Used in tiny little portions it was quite nice, but I can't quite imagine eating it like cole slaw, it really packs a vingary punch! I put a little bit on fish tacos.
