Solterito is a typical salad from the Andean region of Arequipa, in Peru. It is made with fresh fava beans, rocoto (a very hot local chili pepper), queso fresco, and Peruvian giant kernel corn. The combination of flavors and textures in this summer salad work so well that even those who are not big salad eaters are easily seduced by it! Living abroad, I usually make my own version of solterito, using any corn I can find, and replacing the rocoto with regular red hot chili peppers. If I can't find fresh fava beans, I sometimes use frozen edamame or baby lima beans. Add it to your list of cold salad recipes and you will always have a delicious meal to eat.
