When Ofelia Barrios came to visit a few weeks ago and showed us how to make chiles rellenos and tostadas, she brought her friend Yanira Arias form El Salvador with her. Even though Yanira says she doesn’t cook very often, she still wanted to contribute to Open View Gardens and share a traditional dish from her country. In this video, Yanira shows us how to make Fresco de Ensalda, a refreshing drink made from fresh, tropical fruits including mango, orange, pineapple and apple, with the optional addition of the fruit of the cashew tree or memey, if you can get a hold of them.

Why “Open View”?
Growing food grounds us in the relationships between earth and nourishment; preparing food brings us into relationship with our culture and community; sharing meals brings us into close contact with those gathered at the table with us.
What better way to build healthy inclusive communities than through growing locally and cooking globally?
