Raw Taco salad

Yummy!  I left out the nuts since I cant have walnuts or cashews, but the kids really liked this.  I also added spinach, just cause its yummy.  I really like this website with raw recipes.  Not only are they less expensive than a lot of raw recipes, but I can budget dinner at the same time :)

  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 head romaine
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 small jalapeno, sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • black olives
  • green olives
  • 4 tablespoons cashew cream {recipe below}


  • Make the walnut taco meat first and set aside.
  • In a food processor fitted with an "S" blade, pulse the walnuts, half a tomato, cumin, and salt until chopped but still a little chunky.
  • To a bed of chopped romaine, add the walnut taco meat, the other half of tomato (chopped), sliced onion, a bit of sliced jalapeno, chopped avocado, and olives. 
  • Top with a couple scoops of cashew cream.

cashew cream
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Blend all ingredients in small blender until very smooth. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
