All recipes come with a story, and that's what we love so much about food. Recipes are passed from generations, many times with purpose and memories that keep them alive.


This Solterito recipe is a fresh salad from Arequipa, a city in the southern coast of Peru. It means "Single guy". As legend has it, this recipe was created in a guest house for the single men and women who wanted to maintain an attractive figure to get married. We don't know about that, but we do know, it's delicious!
