Healthy and easy—a great salsa for snacking or adding to just about anything!
- Place nopales in a large pot with water and boil until tender, about 15 minutes. Rinse with cold water in a strainer and set aside.
- While nopales are cooking, in a medium bowl add the tomatoes, jalapeños, onion, cilantro and the juice of half a lemon. Mix lightly.
- Add the cooked nopales. Season with salt and pepper and serve with the other half of the lemon.
- Notes: Jarred nopales have too much sodium. Fresh is best! If you use the nopales that come in a jar, rinse and drain them before adding the rest of the ingredients.
