Raw Taco with Fresh Tomato Salsa

Soft Taco with Fresh Tomato Salsa
Serves 3-4
1 1/2 cups raw walnuts, ground in a food processor
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
2 tablespoons Nama Shoyu
3 to 4 small or medium collard green leaves
1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
1 recipe Fresh Tomato Salsa (below)

In a small mixing bowl, combine the walnuts, cumin, and coriander, and mix well. (I added all to my Ninja and pulsed until small pieces were formed)  Add the Nama Shoyu and mix well.  Spread approximately 1/3 cup of the walnut mixture along the center stem of each collard green leaf, then add a layer of shredded lettuce.  Top with approximately 1/3 cup of the salsa just before serving and add sliced avocado.  You can roll like a burrito and slice in half, or just eat like a taco.
