Review and Gift Card Giveaway: Wendy's New Salads


Wendy's has new salads on their menu. Yum!! Some of my favorite things are salads, salmon, reality TV shows (anyone watching Big Brother, btw?) salads, chocolate cake.....hmmm...well, when I think of more I will post them later. But for now, on with this review and giveaway!

"The four reinvented salads at Wendy's combine real ingredients and fresh preparation to deliver an unrivaled taste in every bite. With Wendy's new salads, customers can experience real high-quality ingredients and flavor combinations similar to what they get in a cafe or casual dining restaurant, but with the great value and convenience they expect from Wendy's.

The salads are prepared fresh in-store and topped with a variety of premium ingredients not usually found at fast food restaurants: 11 types of greens, including a spring mix; fruits like cranberries and two types of apples; real blue cheese crumbles and shaved Asiago cheese; fresh Pico de Gallo and guacamole; roasted pecans and warm chicken. Then each salad is served with Marzetti's all natural and preservative-free dressings, made especially for Wendy's, including Pomegranate Vinaigrette, Avocado Ranch, Lemon Garlic Caesar and Creamy Red Jalapeno."

Take a peek at the new salads available at Wendy's now: Apple Pecan Chicken, BLT Cobb, Spicy Chicken Caesar and Baja. Now tell me, is your mouth watering yet? Are you wishing your keyboard was a big old delicious salad?? (Yea, you are....admit it!)

And of course you now are craving to know more about these yummy salads and the fresh ingredients used in them, right? Because I am so nice and giving, I will share these delectable details with you!

Apple Pecan Chicken Salad
A blend of fresh lettuce and spring mix salad greens, topped with real blue cheese crumbles, U.S. grown, hand-picked Granny Smith and sweet red apple pieces, roasted pecans seasoned with sea salt, cayenne pepper and sugar, dried Ocean Spray cranberries and warm grilled chicken. This salad comes with all natural, preservative-free Pomegranate Vinaigrette dressing.

BLT Cobb Salad
A blend of fresh lettuce and spring mix salad greens, topped with two strips of Applewood Smoked Bacon, freshly chopped tomatoes, real blue cheese crumbles, chopped hard boiled eggs and warm grilled chicken. This salad is served with all natural, preservative-free creamy Avocado Ranch dressing.

Baja Salad
A blend of fresh lettuce and spring mix salad greens, topped with natural cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, guacamole made with Hass avocados, freshly prepared Pico de Gallo, all natural tortilla chips, and Wendy’s famous rich and meaty chili. This salad is served with all natural, preservative-free Creamy Red Jalapeno dressing.

Spicy Chicken Caesar
A bed of fresh romaine lettuce topped with vine ripened grape tomatoes, natural shaved Asiago cheese, French bread croutons seasoned with sea salt, black pepper and garlic and Wendy’s famous Spicy Chicken. This salad is served with all natural, preservative-free Lemon Garlic Caesar dressing.

I tried the Apple Pecan Chicken Salad, and it was delicious! I did pass on the chicken as I am vegetarian, but the rest of the salad was as good (and even better in some cases) as restaurant salads I have had. I found it to be very fresh and crunchy. I think I loved the apple the best (the cranberries and blue cheese crumbles are a very close second).....they just added such a unique fresh taste.


And Wendy's not only loves their customers, as evidenced by the care and choice of salads and other menu options, but it turns out they love ME and My Readers!!
