New Yummy Salads From Wendys

10003328_10202270093808013_1295487902_n All weekend I have been fighting off a sinus infection and today I just wanted something light and easy for lunch so I stopped by Wendy’s and saw they had added two new delicious salads. Wendy’s tends to have awesome salads and I always love the variety they offer, but remember those salads can have as much calories as a regular double cheeseburger if you are not careful.

Satellite (1) The one I tried today was the BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad and I got the half size as I was not that hungry. This is a very tasty salad but if you are not careful it can really pack on the calories as well. This salad is topped with roasted corn, large bacon pieces, grilled chicken, cheese, diced tomatoes, has BBQ sauce drizzled on it, and on the side you are also get Marzetti‘s BBQ Ranch Dressing, and bag of croutons. Now on my salad what I did to keep the calories down was I first removed all the bacon pieces they are pretty large pieces so very easy to remove, next I removed about half the cheddar cheese and then I did not use the croutons or the salad dressing as it was already topped with BBQ sauce and figured that was enough calories for me. This salad was super delicious and very filling and a great alternative to your traditional lettuce salads. Calories for this salad with everything it comes with is 310 calories and that is for a half order, that is why you want to try and cut as many calories as possible.

Satellite The second new salad they are now offering which I did not try yet is their new Asian Cashew Chicken Salad. This salad looks amazing and it contains edamame sauce, spicy roasted cashews, grilled chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, and comes with croutons and Spicy Asian Chili Vinaigrette salad dressing on the side. Let me know if you have tried this one yet and how you like it. For a half salad the calories on this are 240 with a full salad having 380 so the calorie count is much lower on this salad then on the BBQ Chicken Salad.
