Similar to the potato, yucca or cassava is a root vegetable from Latin America or Africa favored for its versatility. In this recipe, it pairs easily with a lemon juice, olive oil, garlic dressing.

My fav Salvadorian restaurant serves fried yuca. LOVE it. It is lightly deep fried after boiling. I make at home but pan fry. Boil, cut into chunks, cool. While boiling the yuca put 2-3 T oil (more or less depending on how much yuca you have) in pan with lots of garlic, heat till warm to infuse oil. Cool. Strain out garlic pieces, reserve. Heat oil and pan fry the yuca till you get some crisp on all sides. Return garlic bits to pan and toss for another minute. I make with these....

A favorite El Salvadoran snack, homemade tortillas stuffed with fresh queso blanco cheese are often paired with a traditonal coleslaw called curtido. Farmer's cheese or mozzarella can be substituted for queso blanco.

This El Salvadoran cabbage salad is used as a relish or served with pupusas, which are thick, hand-made tortillas, very common in Latin American cuisine.

If you add black beans and rice, together or separate, you have a delicious meal.
