salad crush

while we were traveling this past week,
i had two of the very best salads ever.
i can't stop thinking about them.
a salad crush, for certain.

they aren't really recipes, but i snapped
photos of their ingredient lists so i can
try my hand at recreating these at home.

the first:
superfood salad
from the deli case at whole foods
in salt lake city
i was surprised that whole foods doesn't have a fresh juice bar,
but if they had, i wouldn't have discovered this amazing salad.
this had a kale base, with carrots, edamame, blueberries, cashews, 
sunflower seeds, and lots of red onion.

the second:
red quinoa salad
{one of my parents' favorite places}
in las vegas
this was a base of arugula {my favorite}, with red quinoa tossed throughout.
toasted almonds, gold beets, and avocado.
i'm not sure if you can tell how enormous this salad was.
long after everyone else was finished, i was still enjoying this huge pile of greens.

i'll let you know if i come up with
anything close to the acai dressing
or the citrus chili vinaigrette.

They both look amazing!!!!
Whole Foods also makes a great quinoa salad with black beans and corn. My WF does not have a juice bar either. Can't figure that one out!
Looking forward to seeing if you can recreate the recipes.
