Extinct Cuisine #2 Extinct WAWA Salads

Wawa (The greatest convenience store in the USA) used to have these great salads with tons of pizzazz and unique ingredients.But the economy caused them to stop manufacturing them (now they only have 4
different types) So Im recreating them all here so in case you miss them you can
make them at home.
