This is a $50,000 Grand Prize Winner in the Pillsbury Cooking Contest. I'm not sure what year. I found it in a newspaper. It's good and different than most pies. Long on ingredients so plan on some time. First time I tried it was in 2002. If you don't have apple pie spice, you can mix together 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon allspice.
Yes, another recipe for this Cuban dish. I don't know if this is Cuban version, but it's very good and pretty. I consider this a company dish. To peel the tomatoes, dip in very hot water; they should peel easily. I got it from the Prudent Diet Cookbook. If you are making it for more than 2 people, adjust measurements.
I do not remember where I got this recipe. We hosted a family reunion in Durango, Colorado. We served this as one of the side dishes. This recipe is great with barbecue and can be made ahead of time. I have never timed how long it takes to make but am guessing about 20 minutes.
Note: The last time I made this, I used a slicer I bought. The cucumbers were sliced very thin. They really need to be a little thicker to avoid getting too limp in the liquid that collects.
This is easy to prepare and gives you a lot of nutrition benefits. I got it from many of the wives at the Marine Corps Logistics Base, Albany, Georgia. The time consuming part is cutting up the vegetables you want to use. You can choose whatever meat or vegetables you like. You can make a double batch and have leftovers for breakfast. Cut up asparagus is also really good in this. Use less meat if you want.
