Curtido (Spanish pronunciation: [kuɾˈtiðo]) is a type of lightly fermented cabbage relish. It is typical in Salvadoran cuisine and that of other Central American countries, and is usually made with cabbage, onions, carrots, oregano, and sometimes lime juice; it resembles sauerkraut, kimchi, or tart cole slaw. It is commonly served alongside pupusas, the national delicacy.
Fellow Central American country Belize has a similar recipe called "curtido" by its Spanish speakers; however, it is a spicy, femented relish made with onions, habaneros, and vinegar. It is used to top salbutes, garnaches, and other Belizean cuisines.
