“Curtido is a kind of El Salvadorian cabbage slaw that is served with pupusas. Traditionally the cabbage and carrot are boiled down and pickled with vinegar and salt, but there are many variations of curtido these days. I like to make my version fresh and crunchy, as many modern variations of this dish are.”
