      My partner only brought me back one bottle of cactus pieces from his trip to Las Vegas and am I ever glad we chose this recipe to use it in! It is very much like a fresh salsa and although we could have used it as a topping for tacos, we lapped it up as a side dish to our main Mexican meal. Thanks Di!

      This recipe is very similar to my mom's, and she makes it all the time, especially for our special occasion barbecues, when we enjoy carne asada. If you are lucky enough to have fresh cactus pieces available, as we are, then you need to julienne, boil with salt, and drain them a couple of times to get rid of the sliminess. Then you can use them in this recipe. Chill this salad, and it is sooo refreshing!!
