One hour in the refrigerator allows for 'mingling' time between cilantro, jalapeno, cactus and other uniquely South-of-the-border ingredients.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 (16 ounce) jar nopales - drained, rinsed, and dried
- 2 cups chopped tomatoes
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 5 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 2 lemons
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt (optional)
In a medium size mixing bowl, combine cactus, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos and cilantro. Squeeze the juice from both lemons over the mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Sprinkle with garlic salt (if you'd like) and serve.
