This is a really simple nopales (cactus) salad. I buy the nopales already diced in the market near me. I like to eat the salad as a taco filling inside tortillas (raw or non-raw, your preference). You could add serrano or jalapenos to spice things up, or you could add raw corn and avocado chunks to make it a more filling salad. Personally, I love the tanginess of the nopales, so I like to keep the flavors simple and light.
2 cup nopales, diced
2 cup tomatoes, diced
¼ cup olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
1. Dice the nopales.
2. Dice the tomatoes.
3. Mix all ingredients together.
4. Eat as is as a light side salad, or add raw corn and avocado for a heftier salad. Or, use as filling for tacos….. or let your imagine run wild! Enjoy!
