Raw Taco Salad

The great thing about Taco salads is they can be as simple or complex as you want them to be. We love all the spicy and freshness about them. This one is fairly simple yet has that Mexican zing you want in the nut taco "meat".

Romaine, chopped  (we use a 3 pk. for our family of 6 eaters)
 1 Bell Peppers, chopped (any kind, but we love red)
 1 Cucumber, seeded and cubed
 Spicy Tomatoes
 3 chopped vine-ripe tomatoes mixed with
1/4 white onion diced
one clove of garlic pressed
2-3 Avocados, pitted
1 Tomato, chopped
Lime juice, 2-3 TBSP
1 tsp Sea Salt
 Nut Taco "Meat"
1 C Walnuts, best if soaked 15 min. or more, but I've rinsed them and called it good.
1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
1 tsp. Chilli Powder
1/2 tsp. Cumin
dash of garlic and onion powder (opt)
Pulse together in the blender until you have a a course crumbly mixture, but not so that it all starts to stick together.
 Drizzle with:
Cashew Dressing
2 1/2 C cashews (best if soaked)
1-2 lemons, juiced (abt. 1/4-1/3 C org. lemon juice)
1-2medium cloves of garlic, minced or pressed through garlic press
1 Tbsp E.V.O.O (optional)
1/2 Tbsp Sea Salt
1 ½ C cold water
In the blender add 1 C water with other ingredients. Blend until thick and creamy. If it is too thick, add the other ½ cup of water and blend.
*Add flax crackers if desired.
