Cactus Salad Recipe April 13 2016, 0 Comments

Here's a nice cactus recipe that uses grilled cactus to add to the salad.

In this recipe one cooks the olive-oiled and salted cactus over a grill until the color changes to a deeper green and some evidence of charring happens. The cactus is removed from the grill and cooled overnight, then it is chopped the next day and added in a bowl with  tomatoes, onions, chilies, cilantro and cheese. Drench with more olive oil and some vinegar, some more salt and some black pepper. Toss well. Serve on plates lined with lettuce leaves, and garnish with avocado slices sprinkled with cracked pepper garnish.

Oh, let me tell ya, this is one fine salad!

On an accompanying note... I recommend adding sweet corn sliced off the cob and some canned black beans.
