Here is my take on the Luau Salad from Cheesecake Factory. When I am dragged there that is my go to salad as its about 550 calories and about the healthiest item on the menu and really taste great. I figured I would make my own version and this one is pretty dam close. This is a true American salad you wont find something like this many other places.
