The ones I've purchased at the store to try as a novelty [cactus doesn't grow here unless one very carefully manipulates the drainage beneath it to protect the roots from water] had a taste reminiscent of green pepper.

We had garden green beans cooked with a bit of bacon fat, cole slaw from my cabbage, BBQ pork, and something called an "apple kuchen" that is made with cake mix with butter as a bottom layer, chopped apples with sugar an cinnamon as a top layer, and sour cream with 2 egg yolks (from my eggs) drizzled on top.
The kuchen was too sweet for my tastes but otherwise excellent, and everything else was flat out delicious.
