Bomb Ass = awesome.

Impromptu = random stuff in my fridge. (This salad is from a few weeks ago, so I currently don’t have these ingredients. Must go get olives.)

Slaw = cabbage.

Salad = veggies, duh.

I am battling a horrible cold/flu so I am going to go back to my couch and my vegetarian chicken broth.

What would your bomb ass salad include?

      @storiesovertea: if you get the right kind of olives they are delicious! I think you just have to keep experimenting and trying new ones to find one that you like. The bragg’s stuff is great – similar to soy sauce.

    My kind of meal but haven’t had such salad for a long time. Need to remake it because it’s always so good.
    Feel better!

    Hope you feel better soon. I’d love to see a recipe for veggie chicken broth- sounds good sick or not! Love the salad (mmm, olives!). In winter I like very finely sliced raw fennel, cold roasted root veggies and some toasted seeds in salads. A little chili pickle or chutney in the dressing helps keep my circulation firing.

    Maggie!!! When did you start blogging again (I never look at Google Reader)? I stopped by to look up one of your recipes and was so happy to see that you are posting again. Yay!

    My bomb ass salad would included avocado, maybe some salmon, spinach, bleu cheese, bacon and your miso tahini dressing which is what I came here to find. :)

      @Heather: I started a few weeks ago, but sporadically! Your salad sounds delish :)

    I hope you’re feeling better. I was just looking for a slaw recipe for Super Bowl. I love the colors in your slaw. Lots of color equals healthy and delicious.
