Has anyone heard of or have a recipe for Nopolitos (Prickly Pear Cactus)? I got a wild hair the other day at the store and bought some...only to get it home and have no earthly idea what in the world to do with it!!! :eek:
I have had it boiled before and it was great... But, now I don't want to do that... If you can help, please chime in!!!

Here are a couple recipes I've been meaning to try myself. Maybe one of them sounds good to you.
(Silica is good for skin, bones, joints, hair, teeth, lungs)
Red leaf lettuce,
Dressing: Orange juice, Nama Shoyu, Olive oil
Nuts- shake in bag with Agave Nectar, Sea Salt, Cayenne
Note: Put the okra and cactus in just before you eat. Their high silica content
makes them slimy after an hour- that's natural and okay.
This salad is fresh and festive.
4 cups shredded green cabbage
2 fresh cactus leaves,
cleaned and finely chopped (about 1 cup)
4 thin slices of white onion
4 radishes, thinly sliced
1 large tomato, chopped
1 serrano chili, seeds removed, and minced
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon oil
1 teaspoon agave nectar
1. Wash hands thoroughly with warm water and soap.
2. Mix cabbage, cactus, onion, radishes, tomato, and serrano chili in a medium
bowl. Place salad on four separate plates
3. Stir together vinegar, oil, and agave nectar; drizzle over salad.
