Never fear the Nopalito! Cactus can seem intimidating to some but the preparation is quite easy. Our cactus salad, with it’s firm consistency, can withstand even the most intense of dressings — so you don’t have to worry about any soggy salads here! Just add a splash of Naranja Agria Vinaigrette and you’re ready to take on any summertime celebration.


Ingredients: Naranja Agria Vinaigrette


Drain and rinse the cactus under cool water.

In a large bowl, combine and toss cactus, onion, tomatoes, cilantro, broccoli, chick peas, and feta cheese, seasoning with salt and pepper — to taste. Allow to sit for flavors to combine. 

In a blender, prepare vinaigrette by combining naranja agria marinade, olive oil, garlic, and mustard. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour over salad and let sit for a few minutes to enhance flavor. 

Chef La Pref Tip

Blanching 101: Boil 4 cups of water with 2 Tbsp. of salt. Add broccoli (or other vegetable) and boil for 1 minute. Using a colander, drain water and soak broccoli in cold water for 1 minute.
