When I eat a salad, I don't want to feel like I'm eating a salad. I like salads loaded with fun little surprises, lots of textures and most importantly, lots of flavor. I mean don't get me wrong....lettuce is awesome and everything but seriously, no one sits down to a bowl of lettuce and starts salivating and losing control of their taste buds with anticipation.

"No great story ever started with a salad"

So when making a salad, I like to get funky with it - add in tons of mix-in's and make a great dressing to go along with it. This salad is just that - with every bite, you get a new texture and flavor and it's delicious! I love the influence of Asian flavors in this salad as well!
