Cactus Salad With Avocado Dressing- Nopales
27 mins (prep 20, cooking 7)
16 ingredients
4 servings
This makes a nice side for traditional Mexican dishes. It is much different than the usual nopales salad because it takes on the flavor of the avocado. I even ate this for breakfast with a tostada shell! You can prepare the nopales ahead but don't make the dressing too far in advanced because it may discolor. I also kept it healthier by leaving out the chicharron. From Fresh Mexico by By Marcella Valladolid.
