  • Place mandioca, pumpkin and garlic in large saucepan. Add enough water to cover all ingredients by 2 inches. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 15 min. or just until yuca and pumpkin are tender. Drain. Cool.
  • Spoon mandioca mixture into large serving bowl. Add onions; mix lightly. Chop 1 of the eggs. Add to mandioca mixture along with the mayonnaise; stir gently until well blended.
  • Cut remaining egg into wedges; arrange over salad.

Special Equipment Needed

Best of Season

Known as mandioca in Paraguay, yuca is available year-round. Look for firm, well-formed tubers, free of blemishes, with a clean fresh scent. Store whole mandioca in a cool, dark dry place for up to 1 week. Store peeled mandioca in the refrigerator covered with water. Or, freeze whole mandioca for several months.


Substitute any winter squash for the pumpkin.
