Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and menu planning is already on my mind. With family and friends gathering in my home to celebrate, I want to fill their bellies with the warmth and love I feel for them. I also take this opportunity to instill our family’s Cuban heritage in my children. A typical Cuban salad is the best opening for a feast. However, I promise you this recipe is anything but typical!
