Looking for a huge extravagant (preferably vegan) salad. I'm Tired of your basic mixed greens and balsamic. Any out of this world salad combos I should seek out? thanks.

Even though Mesa Grill has seen better days food wise, I still love Sophie's Salad...although it does contain cheese. It's a delicious chopped salad with chick peas and red beans, shredded romaine, diced tomatoes, a dice of monterey jack and cheddar...and I forget what else. Nice kicky balsamic vinaigrette that has a few hard to decipher secrets. I just recreated (or tried to) the salad for a bachelorette party potluck dinner, and it got rave reviews.
One of the best salads in the world is the house salad at Dojo's in the East Village. It's really basic, but their carrot miso dressing is like no other. You'll lick the plate.
Candle Cafe on the Upper East Side has plenty of delicious vegan-friendly salads. Actually, I'm pretty sure the entire menu is vegan-friendly.
I ate a lovely unusual salad the other day--garbonzo beans,red beans and sliced black olives in a spicy mayonaise dressing--was delicious-and unusual. Try it..
