When yuca is cool enough to handle, cut into french fry shapes.
Heat 1 inch of vegetable oil in a heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat. Add yuca fries in batches and fry about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and season to taste with salt.
Repeat with remaining fries.
Serve with green salsa.
