My recipe is reversed engineered from the many Salvadoran curtidos I’ve tasted around the Los Angeles area. Most internet recipes don’t allow enough pickling time. Do NOT use a regular yellow onion – it is too stinky! Cole slaw mix can be substituted for the cabbage and carrot.
- 1In a large pot, cover the cabbage with water and bring to a boil. Simmer for only one or two minutes. Remove from the heat and strain out the cooking water.
- 2Combine blanched cabbage with the remaining ingredients in a glass container, adding enough water to barely cover the vegetables.
- 3Refrigerate at least 12 hours before serving.
