Recipe is from Cacique USA, makers of Mexican cheeses. The tomato and the tomatillo are native to Mexico. It is thought that the early mention of tomatoes in historical records may really have been references to the tomatillo. Learn about tomatillos.
Recipe is reprinted with permission from Rivenrock Gardens growers of organic cactus (nopales). Rivenrock sells both wholesale and retail."For a real crowd pleaser at a picnic or party make this cactus salsa ahead of time and allow to blend its flavors in the refrigerator for a few hours or more."
A traditional salsa made in a molcajete (stone bowl) includes Serrano chiles, onions, cilantro, and tomatoes.
