Pico de gallo
  1. Dice the tomatoes and onion. Mince the garlic and jalapeno. Roughly chop the cilantro.
  2. Add salt and lime juice and toss together.
Corn salsa
  1. Dice the onion. Mince the garlic and jalapeno. Roughly chop the cilantro. Mix it all together with corn.
  2. Add salt and lime juice and toss together.
Guacamole
  1. Mash the avocado with a fork or with a mortar and pestle, and mix in finely mined garlic, lime juice and salt. If you are using a mortar and pestle, you can crush the garlic first, before you mash up the avocado to release the flavor and aroma.
Assembly
  1. Wash and dry the romaine lettuce, chop it up and put it in a salad bowl.
  2. Top the lettuce with, starting from the bottom, cilantro lime rice, walnut taco meat, pico de gallo, corn salsa, and guacamole.
  3. Garnish with some cilantro leaves, and drizzle some raw vegan nacho cheese sauce to finish.
Notes
You can make this into a jar salad. Fill the mason jar starting with nacho cheese sauce, cilantro lime rice, corn salsa, pico de gallo, walnut taco meat, and romaine lettuce leaves. I omitted the guacamole so it doesn't turn color from oxidization.
