Ingredients
  • For Salad:
  • ½ avocado = $0.50
  • 2 hearts of romaine (organic if you can source it) = $2
  • 1 tomato, chopped = $1
  • ½ red onion, chopped = $0.63
  • ⅓ bunch cilantro, chopped = $0.50
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice = $0.25
  • For Taco Filling:
  • 2 cups walnuts = $4.00
  • 1 Tbs. cumin = $0.87
  • ½ Tbs. coriander  = $0.57
  • 2 Tbs. low sodium tamari = $0.03
  • 1 tsp. chili powder = $0.09
Instructions
  1. For the taco filling: Put the walnuts in a food processor with the blade in place, and process 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.
  2. To save time: just chop the walnuts by hand on a cutting board, and then mix the spices in, then toss in the tamari last. That way you won't have to clean up the food processor!
  3. Make a quick salsa by mixing the chopped tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and lemon juice.
  4. Arrange the chopped romaine in your favorite serving bowl and spoon the taco filling on top.
  5. Add the salsa and top off with the avocado slices, fanned out. The avocado is optional, you can leave it out and get the substantial feeling of the salad from the nut meat combined with the veggies.
  6. Enjoy!
