Doesn't it bitter? Have you ever tried it? The salad looks delicious by the way.
Good to attrack attention from your guests!
that is some serious large cactus!!!
I havent tasted cactus before .er..i have a pot of cactus at the balcony , should i try making salad with it? ps. in the other photo, it's too lovely to be eaten!
I wanna try some. That means when they used to milk cacti for juice in the cartoons, it wasn't a gag! I understand the Road Runner much better now.
never had cactus salad before, gotta try next time in SD ;-)
I've seen these here in a Mexican mecado and in Mexico but have never tried it. Guess I need to remedy that. I just checked the cookbook by Mexican cook guru, Diana Kennedy, and the recipe is fairly simple. Think I'll shop and try it this week-end. If interested, surf the net for recipes.
Nice shot! Some of my co-workers also make a morning smoothie out of cactus. I never tried it though.
Thanks everybody! I've never made cactus salad before but I did have it at a restaurant once. It has a mild flavor and it's consistency is a lot like crunchy green beans. Kris, I guess you could use your own plant, but watch out for the thorns! I hear the smaller the "leaves" the better. Rodney, cactus smoothie sounds good!
