The ever popular ensalada de nopales or cactus salad is one of the most popular dishes in México and a favorite here at Mi Pueblo.
On just about any given day you will easily find a member from our fresh Produce team cleaning nopales as soon as you walk into one of our stores. Though it may look easy, patience and dedication are key to cleaning nopales and ensuring there are no thorns left on them. Once fully clean and free of thorns, they may be cooked alone for a fresh and natural flavor.
Alternatively, you can mix them with other fresh vegetables and ingredients for a more savory taste, one that will make your taste buds fall in love with the unique flavor. And do not forget to have your chips ready to fully enjoy this incredibly healthy plate!
