Let's Make It
1
Cut off both ends of yuca. Peel the thick brown skin; peel again to reach clear white skin. Cut yuca lengthwise in half; remove fibrous cord in center. Cut into 1-inch cubes. (You should have about 6 cups cubes.)
2
Place in large saucepan; add enough water to cover yuca completely. Add vinegar and salt; stir. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 25 to 30 min. or until yuca is tender. Drain. Cool completely.
3
Mix mayo, peppers, onions, garlic and bacon in large bowl. Add yuca; mix lightly. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
How to Peel Yuca
Yuca has a thick brown skin which needs to be peeled before use, revealing a crisp white flesh inside. Also, the tuber has a tough fibrous core that also needs to be removed before use. Use a sharp knife to remove both the peel and the inner core.
Tip 2
Food Facts
When purchasing yuca, look for firm well-formed tubers with unblemished peels and a clean fresh scent. Store unpeeled yuca in a cool dry place for up to 1 week. If peeled, cover the yucca with water and store in refrigerator up to 24 hours. Or, place the peeled yuca in a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag and freeze up to 3 months. Yuca cannot be consumed raw and should always be cooked before eating
