Change up the spices to your tastes. This is a great recipe because it comes together quickly.
Serves 1 - 2
1/2 raw walnuts
2 - 3 sun-dried tomatoes, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes
cumin powder (We are out of cumin powder, so I added cumin seeds)
Tomatoes (I used cherry and roma from the garden)
hungarian wax pepper
juice from 1/2 lime
1 ear corn
Place the walnuts and tomatoes in a food processor (I used the smaller bowl because I am using such small amounts). Pulse until it appears to have the texture of ground meat. Add the seasonings to taste.
This is just what I had ripe in my garden, feel free to use whatever you think would be good in salsa.
Roughly chop the tomatoes, onion, and chili. Place the tomatoes, onion, chili, and herbs in a food processor (again I used the smaller bowl) and pulse until still chunky, but mixed. Transfer to a bowl and season to taste.
Shuck the corn. Place the ear of corn upright and using a knife, cut away the kernels into a bowl. Add the avocado and mix. Season to taste.
Wash and dry the lettuce. Chop into a bowl and add the meat, salsa, and guacamole.
This was really really good. The walnut meat has A LOT of flavour. I'm going to try it again with pecans because my husband is sensitive to walnuts. I'm happy that I was able to make the salsa completely from our garden. Garden vegetables taste waaay better than anything bought from the store.
I had a couple of tortillas in the fridge that needed to be used. I put them in the toaster oven until they were crispy and served it with the salad.
