Earlier this month, to kick off the summer season, Wendy's brought back their popular seasonal item - the Berry Almond Chicken Salad.
The salad is filled with 11 kinds of greens, warm grilled chicken, blueberries and strawberries, and Asiago cheese. It comes with a packet of natural, slivered, roasted almonds and an all-natural fat-free raspberry vinaigrette made with juice from acai berries.
I was surprised by how much I liked the flavor of the the raspberry vinaigrette - it wasn't overpowering and it has a nice thickness to it with a rich purple color.
I wish there was a little bit more of the berries and Asiago cheese in the salad, but overall I thought it was very tasty and will be ordering this again before it's off the menu.
The salad comes in full-size (360 calories w/out the dressing) and half-size (230 calories). I had the half-size and that was plenty big enough for a lunch for me. It had plenty of chicken to make it a filling meal.
Wendy's restaurants and is available for a limited time.
I have 3 $10 gift cards to Wendy's to give away. Simply leave a comment (making sure I have a way to contact you if you're the winner) and state whether or not you've tried this salad.
