Cactus leaves are also called nopal or nopales. Cactus leaf is widely used in Mexican cuisine. Here they use cactus leaves in salads, tacos, minced meat or with eggs and many believe in the healing power of cactus leaf. But feel free to use cactus leaf in a blender, together with orange juice; a delicious and healthy juice! Don't forget to remove the needles :-)
