Prickly Pears are the fruit of the Prickly Pear cactus. They grow here in Italy! Unbelievably, I’ve even spotted some on the streets here in Empoli, Tuscany.
- Using the method in my video de-skin the prickly pears. Roughly slice them and put them into the blender.
- Remove the skin and core from the pineapple and chop it roughly before adding to the blender along with the lime juice. (If you don’t have a high powered blender you should blend the fruit together now before adding the lettuce and blending again.)
- Wash the lettuce leaves and break them up roughly with your hands. Add to the blender.
- Blend the ingredients until thoroughly combined.
