The Ingredients for Authentic Mexican “Nopales” Cactus Salad:

  • 6-8 “NoPales” Cactus paddles
  • 1 Medium white onion
  • 2 Medium tomatoes
  • 1 Cup cilantro
  • 1-2 Green hot peppers (green bird’s eye Chile pepper or you can also use Jalapeño)
  • 1-2 Limes
  • Salt to taste (preferable “sal de grano” – coarse sea salt)

How to Prepare:

  • Boil the cactus paddles in water with cilantro and onion in a medium saucepan until soft.
  • Then, drain into a plastic strainer and let it set for about 15 minutes to allow all of the liquid from the “NoPales” Cactus to drain completely.
  • Rinse thoroughly with cold water to get rid of the “NoPales” Cactus viscose liquid.
  • Chop the “NoPales” Cactus to size you prefer.
  • Mix together the chopped “NoPales” Cactus, chopped onion, tomato, cilantro and green hot peppers. Season with salt.
  • Serve this healthy and delicious dish as a salad or side dish with Los Cantores Tortilla Chips.
