Have you ever bought a ready made salad at a grocery store or restaurant and thought, hey I can make this?! Well I had this salad at a Whole Foods one day, and it was so delish that I absolutely had to try recreating it at home .. it turned out so great! 

It's a super tasty & filling salad and the addition of the tofu makes it a perfect full meal.  It's flavourful and comforting without feeling heavy.  These kinds of salads are awesome because you can customize them any way you like - think of it as the perfect "clean out the fridge kind of meal".  So, are you ready to take your salad game up a notch? :)
