Dear Paula, I read your recipe for a Cuban sandwich and I was very surpassed on the ingredients. I was raised in Miami, fl and in the sandwich there is no salami,or mayo. It is ham,pork (porketa get it in the deli.) swiss cheese on Cuban bread. Butter the top and bottom of bread and put on a frying pan and weigh down with something heavy. and flip over and eat warm. I was raised in Miami, Fl and I cook Cuban food a lot. My three children all cook cuban. If you are ever in San Antonio and you want to eat Cuban food just give me a call, and would be more than happy to cook for you. May the good Lord bless you and your family. Sincerely Yours, Clara Ramos
