Expert Tips

If you can't find choclo, you can use regular corn.

Last week I was at the local farmers market searching for fresh ingredients to prepare a solterito arequipeño. The solterito is a cold dish, typically found in Arequipa, a city in southern Peru. It serves as an appetizer and they say that the guests who came single commonly ate this snack to prevent gaining weight and appearing unattractive. One of the main ingredients is the cheese, known as solterito de queso.

Directions

  • 1 Boil the green beans and corn in a pot. Once the corn is cooked, remove the kernels from the cob.
  • 2 Chop the onion, the tomato, the cheese and the olives. Place in a bowl and season with olive oil, salt, pepper and vinegar. Mix the ingredients.
  • 3 Once seasoned, the solterito will be ready to serve. Sprinkle with parsley for decoration.
