Raw Spicy Walnut Taco Salad

Rule #1 of living with me:

Be prepared to have Mexican food for lunch every single day of the week. More like, “see me having”, because this girl doesn’t share when it comes to yummy food.

Fresh, crisp greens topped with zesty pico de gallo, creamy avocado, crunchy cauliflower rice and spicy walnut meat? More than just yummy! 

No sharing when it comes to food which is this delicious. Except that I always make enough food to feed an army of one million, so yeah, be prepared to have Mexican for lunch and dinner every day of the week.

Rule #2 of living with me:

Get addicted to both Game of Thrones and Narcos so we can watch them together (or re-watch them for the 3776876th time in my case) AND deal with the fact that I’ve called all of the plants in the house “Pedro”.

I mean, Pedro the plant does have a nice ring to it.

Please, tell that to my roommates!

Rule #3 of living with me:

Put up with the fact that the veggie drawer of the fridge is filled with deliciously ripe avocados waiting to be made into taco salads, guac, avo toasts and more taco salads.

It’s actually an easy thing to put up with if you take into account that you’re getting a salad this nice after, right?

Can you guys believe this salad is all vegan, raw, paleo, gluten free and nasty free at the same time?? And it still tastes like something you could get from a Mexican food joint!

Don’t forget to add this to your lunch menu when you’re in need of a delicious light lunch which doesn’t disappoint!
