Wild boar taco with Nopales salad and pickled red onions

After deer hunting hard last fall, with little succes, we committed to only harvest a mature Kentucky buck, we decided to go boar hunting near Macon, about 3 hours south of Atlanta, Georgia.
Here is Donny with a big boy, I believe his boar was around 250 lbs.

FYI, the biggest hog taken in Georgia was in 2007 killed in Fayetteville, he was 9 foot long and weighed in at 1100 Lbs.

Wild Baor Taos are a great dinner for cinco de mayo or any other day and the pickled onions add another flavor and a sweet crunch to the taco.

The Nopal cactus or more commonly known as “Prickly Pear” has been a staple part of Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine for centuries. Cactus is a very low calorie vegetable, 3 ounces carry just 16 calories and is extremely high in fiber and vitamins especially vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K and minerals.

You can say that Nopales are trending with the raw and natural food community and may be considered a super food due to its cholesterol lowering capabilities.
Nopales cactus traditionally has been used as a cure for gastric ulcers, recent studies have verified these effects.
