  • 1/2 head Cabbage, shredded
  • 1 Carrot, peeled and grated
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 3 scallions, minced
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 jalapeno or serrano chile pepper, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Place the cabbage and carrots in a large heat-proof bowl. Pour the boiling water into the bowl to cover the cabbage and carrots and set aside for about 5 minutes. Drain in a colander, pressing out as much liquid as possible.
  2. Return the cabbage to the bowl and toss with the remaining of the ingredients. Let set at room temperature for a couple hours if you like. Then chill and serve as an accompaniment to pupusas or as a side dish.


Curtido is something that is never missing in a salvadorian home. It goes well as a side dish with many foods.
