Yet another of Starbucks' $7.90 healthy salad bowls. This one clocks in at roughly 250kcal without dressing.

An assortment of toppings lie snug atop a bed of quinoa. There were roast chicken slices, carrot slices, sundried tomato, zucchini cubes, sweet corn, golden raisins and shimeiji mushrooms. I didn't dress this (I normally minimize the dressing on my salads), but I felt that one of Starbucks' spicier sauces like their spicy miso would be perfect to pair with this bowl.

I liked the addition of the sundried tomato the most as it provided a sweetness to the bowl. The chicken was dry and the slices were literally paper thin but honestly I wasn't really expecting anything else as the bowls are stored in the fridge. Still the quinoa, which made up the largest part of the dish tasted good, so I definitely wouldn't mind getting this again.

I did prefer the prawn couscous bowl though, the addition of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower added much needed crunch to the bowl.
