    This was pretty good! Nice and quick easy! The kids gobbled in up. Thanks for sharing!

    Quite good. Makes a good salsa for chips. I'm taking this to a 4th of July party to freak out my Yankee neighbors.

    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!!

    This was really good! I ate it with tortilla chips, as a substitute for salsa. This was my introduction to nopalitos (admittedly, I was a little apprehensive), and I'm sure I'll be making this again. Thanks!
