This was very good. I thought the proportion of spices and tanginess from the vinegar was just right.

I love this recipe! In face, my Salvadoran mother-in-law loved it so much, she asked *me* for the recipe!! (I do add a bit more vinegar (1/2 cup) and reduce water to 1/4 cup.)

This is the best of all of curtido recipes that I have found online. I used the food processor to slice the cabbage and onions fine. The amount of pickling liquid it just right too - no overly dry or wet. We got hooked on pupusas and curtido when first tried them in the DC metro.
