This is round two of this salad within four days.  I loved it so much I knew I wanted to make it again to blog and share.  Many times I switch things up to improve the original recipe, but not this one.  It was perfect.  I loved the crunch from all the different vegetables and the miso lime dressing, an excellent compliment.  This meal really did it for me, crunchy and colorful!
