The most important part is preparing the cactus. Pour cactus into a strainer and run through some water and wash out most of the water (it will be somewhat slimy). Don’t wash it out too much though because you will wash out all the flavor. Cactus should have a sticky consistency.
Dice the cactus.
Put the cactus in a bowl and prepare the avocado. Chop up and mash the avocado before mixing it in otherwise it will be hard to mix in later on.
Peel the cucumbers, chop up the tomato, onion and all remaining ingredients, making sure everything is finely diced.
Drain the peas and mix everything together.
Salt and pepper to taste, and don’t forget the lemon!
