Cactus Paddle Salad (Nopales Salad)
50 mins (prep 30, cooking 20)
12 ingredients
4 servings
If you can't get fresh nopales, you can substitute a 12 - 15 ounce jar of the cactus pieces, drained. If you can't find Mexican queso fresco, you can substitue feta cheese--but the feta may be saltier than the queso so adjust your seasoning.
