Three Bean Salad with Nopalitos

This salad is a take on the traditional canned three bean salad. The different colors and sizes add interest, but you can use just one type of bean for convenience.


  • 2 nopal pads, grilled or broiled and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 cup cooked white beans
  • 1 cup cooked kidney beans
  • 1 cup cooked black beans
  • ½ bunch green onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients and stir well to mix. Let salad sit for at least one hour before serving.
