Taco Salad

Like any Texan, I love tex-mex flavors.  Cumin?  Cilantro? Yes please!

I read this post on Happy Foody months ago and filed it away in my brain as a ‘to make’ recipe. I finally got to it, and, oh my, it was so good.  I made the walnut meat and cashew sour cream and used them to top a salad, along with salsa and avocado.

1/2 cup walnuts
1 T ground cumin
2 T chopped cilantro
1/3 cup olive oil
2/3 t sea salt
1 t  soy sauce

Process almond and walnuts and put aside in a bowl. Add other ingredients and mix well with a spoon. Keeps for 4-5 days in the fridge.
