You won’t believe it’s raw! Taco salad really never tasted so healthy and good. Chef Sarah combines fresh zesty ingredients like limes and walnuts with seasonings as mock taco “meat” for a delicious tasty snack or dinner meal.


1. A large head of lettuce, shredded
2. 1 lime
3. Walnut Taco Meat

2 cups walnuts, soaked 4-6 hours
1 tbsp dehydrated minced onion
2-3 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of cayenne

4. Easy Guacamole

2 small, ripe avocados
1/2 cup tomato, diced
3 tbsp red onion, diced
Juice of 1/2 a lime
salt to taste

5. Pico de Gallo

2 large tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1/4 cup of cilantro, minced
1 tbsp lemon or lime juice
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
salt to taste

6. Cashew Sour Cream

1 cup cashews, soaked 4-6 hours
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp salt


3. Walnut Taco Meat

Blend walnuts in a food process until they break down into small crumbs. Do not over mix, they will quickly form a paste. Add remaining ingredients and pulse a few times until well blended. Remove from processor and set aside.

4. Easy Guacamole

In a small bowl mash the avocados until fairly smooth. Add remaining ingredients and mix together.

5. Pico de Gallo

Mix together all ingredients in a small bowl.

6. Cashew Sour Cream

Blend the soaked cashews with 1/2 cup water in a food processor or powerful blender until very smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend until well combined.
