This came from my friend, Dot. Cactus appears to be good for lowering bad cholesterol and decreasing inflammation.
1 jar canned Nopalitos (found in the Ethnic food section of the grocery, even Wal-Mart)
1 sm. red onion, chopped
½ bunch cilantro, chopped
4-5 Roma tomatoes, diced
S+ P to taste
Juice of 2-3 limes
1 jalapeño (fresh) seeded and chopped (optional)
Drain and rinse the nopalitos in cold water until they aren’t slimy. Mix ingredients together. Serve chilled.
I love this on a black bean burger.
