Raw Taco Salad

I love raw foods. They are nutritional advantageous and bursting with flavour. So it is my double happiness. I am slowly starting to experiment more into my everyday. This is an easy one, with an unusual use for walnuts and a totally delicious take on taco salad.


  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 3 cups Mix of kale and spinach
  • 1 Tomato chopped
  • 1/2 Red onion chopped
  • 1/2 bunch Cilantro chopped
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 cups Walnuts
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tbsp Coriander
  • 2 tbsp Tamari low sodium
  • 1 tsp Chili powder
  • 1-2 dashes Cayenne pepper


  • For the taco filling: Process walnuts until chunky. Scrape the ground nuts into a bowl, and mix in the cumin, coriander, chili powder and cayenne. 
  • Add the tamari and mix again. 
  • Make a quick salsa by mixing the chopped tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and lemon juice.Arrange the salad and spoon the taco filling on top.  Add the salsa and top off with the avocado slices.
