Spicy Cactus Salad

Patsy G


This is a wonderful salad,easy to make that goes well with grilled eats or Mexican food. Make it as spicy as you please.
The recipe calls for fresh cheese,I use queso fresco or feta cheese works well too.
The original recipe does not call for garlic,I just love garlic and think it works well in this recipe,so it's optional.
Some of my friends like to eat this with tortilla chips but I eat it as a salad.
