Culinary Cactus: New Years Resolution Edition

We know you've got your sights set on a vibrant new year, and clean eating is a big part of that. Pair these healthy and delish dishes with CALIWATER Cactus Water for an entirely new you in 2017!


1. Cactus Salad

It may not be easy being green, but eating green has never been simpler. Toss some nopales, onions, tomatoes, and cilantro in lemon juice; add spices; top with cheese -- and, voila! You've got a killer cactus salad.

2. Cactus Tacos

There's no need to wait for Tuesday; any day can be taco day if you put your mind to it! Check out Jason Wyrick's Vegan Tacos for a cactus recipe worth writing home about.

3. Grilled Cactus

Bust out the grill and get creative with toppings. Salsa, pepper jelly, and hummus are all worthy sidekicks!

4. Cactus Dessert

Prickly pear sorbet on a hot desert day? Yes, please! (Or should we say, "uno más, por favor"?!)
