Taco Tuesday: The Raw Edition


It’s summer time and what better way to celebrate Taco Tuesday than with a cool, easy-to-make, raw taco. It’s walnut meat, which I have posted about before, but I never thought to wrap it in lettuce until I did the raw challenge a while back. I love it for lunch or dinner or any day of the week!
