Lunch Time! Take a Bao

So, I just took advantage of an Uber Eats promo which, as you may or may not know, is kind of a gamble because you basically get whatever they have on their very, very limited menu that day.  You're at the mercy of those who are in charge of deciding whatever they feel like serving up that day so you just kind of pray the stars align and the tastebud gods are in your favor.  The good news is that they seem to only offer the best menu items from some of the best restaurants in the immediate area.
Anyway, from the three options presented to me I selected the 8 Veggie Salad from Take a Bao which, if I'm being totally honest, was not love at first site.  It's not much to look at.  The Grandma's Tangy Vinaigrette looked like cloudy water.  But I was hungry so I poured it over my greens and went in on what was expected to be a rather bland and tasteless iceberg(?) medley.  I couldn't have been more wrong about this salad.  The dressing is amazeballs!  The 8 veggies do, in fact, play nicely together although I would have enjoyed some greener greens or maybe some other colors getting in on the action (a few more tomatoes even?).  
So the moral of the story, is do not judge a book by its cover or you may miss out on something delicious and we cannot have that, now can we?  Even if monochromatic, this salad was the bomb and I'll definitely order again and try some other goodies from Take a Bao.
