I made Encarnacion Pinedo's recipe for cucumber salad though I had no idea what malpica is...I'm not sure she even knew what it was! The ingredients sections reads: "an otherwise unidentified salad herb." Not too helpful, so I took some liberties and used a combination of fresh thyme, fresh oregano, and fresh mint.
chopped poblano chili
smoked sea salt
freshly ground pepper
This was a nice, refreshing course between the main dish and the desserts.
