This easy-to-make Raw Nopales Salad has become very popular in Mexico. Cactus Paddles are usually called “Nopales” or “Nopalitos” in Mexico, and we use them in salads, stews, soups, and even in drinks (you can also grill them). It’s a healthy and nutritious source of fiber.
One delicious addition to this salad, believe it or not, is diced mango. If you choose to use it, add it when you combine the vegetables.
You can also use crunchy pieces of Chicharrones to top the salad at serving time.
