Sides for Cuban sandwiches??

I have a couple of sweet little pork tenderloins that I'm going to grill up on Sunday to make Cubans. A quiet Cinco de Mayo observance, one day early.

What (besides Dos Equus) would you suggest I serve to go with?

Platanos

cant go wrong with some fried plantains.... I love those suckers and cant resist them even though they do a number on me... I always feel like I need a siesta after them

or for a fresher taste maybe a citrusy avocado salad...

or a spicy ceviche

gazpacho

Black beans and rice is a standard Cuban dish.

I'd suggest yucca and/or black beans and rice.

Why would you serve Cuban sandwiches on a Mexican holiday?
