Fiambre, which means "served cold" is eaten only in Guatemala on All Saint's Day. Though its origins are murky, as families took dozens of little dishes to the cemetery, over time they got mixed together, resulting in this easier-to-carry creation. This recipe first appeared in our November 2011 issue along with Kent Black's story Saintly Salad.
