Cactus Salad


Some people see danger. I see dinner!


A recent secret I learned when making cactus paddles (nopales) is to add some tomatillo husks (and corn husks if you have them) to the boiling water as you cook them. The texture of the nopales improves and husks absorb some of the okra-like goo.


To make a salad, I used some cooked nopales, cooked Black Valentine beans, cubed cheese, diced red onion, some cilantro and salad greens. Toss with your favorite dressing.
