Nopales have been one of the chief components of Mexican cuisine for centuries and are still today, gaining international popularity for their health benefits. They are very low in calories and high in fiber, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Nopal is a vegetable that comes from the young pads of the prickly pear cactus that have been carefully peeled to remove the spines. They have a light tart flavour similar to green beans and a crisp texture. These nopales are brined giving them a softer texture and a more acidic flavour which is very nice in salads and salsas.
They can also be used in soups, stews, meat dishes and Vegetable salads.
Refrigerate after opening in a sealed container and use within 4 weeks.
