have you ever eat any.

A car went by 3 times then they finally stopped and asked if mine was for sale I said no but you can have some.  Her son asked if I had ever eat any of it and couldn't believe I said no because as he said it is delicious.  I gave her some to cook and some to plant.  She kept trying to pay me but I told her I don't mind sharing it I give some away every year to keep it from getting to big.

Quoting 02nana07:

 do you have a recipe and how do you keep from getting stuck while preparing it

Quoting rkoloms:

I have had Nopales (made from the leaves of the prickly pear). Very tasty!

 

I have only had them in restaurants. I have been holding on to this recipe for a while, and have not tried it:

 Nopales Salad With Roasted Corn and Feta Cheese

2 cups cactus pad (nopales) -- rinsed, julienned
1/2 medium red onion -- julienned
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
2 medium tomatoes -- diced
1/2 cup roasted corn
1 jalapeƱo -- minced, (optional)
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Juice of 1 lime
1 cup olive oil
Salt -- to taste
Freshly-ground balck pepper -- to taste
Feta cheese crumbles -- to garnish

If using fresh nopales, steam or blanch, then cool and cut into 
julienne. If using nopales from a jar, rinse to remove the slippery 
coating. 

In a mixing bowl, combine vinegar and lime juice, then whisk in olive 
oil. Toss dressing with onion, cilantro, tomatoes and corn. 
Finally, add nopales, toss together well and season to taste. Place 
in a serving dish and garnish with crumbles of feta cheese. 

 

You are brave...I don't think I could bring myself to trying it!
