If you have fresh nopale pads, skin dice and cook until tender in lightly salted water.
Canned nopales can be used, just rinse and drain well.
I use about 2 cups of prepared nopales.
1/2 cup of chopped onion
2 cups of black beans, rinsed and drained well
fresh chopped tomato
For the dressing combine..
1/3 cup of red wine vinegar
2/3 cup of a light veggie oil
kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste.
1 clove of garlic...minced
about 1 TBs dijon mustard
Whisk and pour over salad....chill for several hours before serving.
My store carries yuca root. It is similar to a potato, but I like it better.
Peel the yuca root.
The picture shows the top two pieces still have the center intact.
The pithy center has been removed from the bottom two pieces.
Drain the yuca.... Place a small amount of oil or butter in the skillet, add the yuca, chopped onions and minced garlic.
Also, my favorite way to fry them is in a cast iron skillet over a hot fire on the grill....with some of my homemade smoked seasoned salt sprinkled on top.
