DUBLIN, Ohio, May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Eating better just got a whole lot tastier with the addition of Wendy's new Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad to its permanent menu lineup. Filled with bold flavors and packed with deliciously satisfying ingredients, this salad makes eating better…better.

Wendy's Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad is the easiest, better-for-you choice you'll make all day. With nearly a day's worth of protein and made with a savory, delicious blend of ingredients like quinoa, fire-roasted vegetables and sundried tomatoes, this bold salad delivers on fresh Mediterranean-inspired flavors. The fully dressed, full-sized entree is 450 calories. The Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad pairs well with a crisp and refreshing HONEST(R) Tropical Green Tea made Exclusively for Wendy's. The proprietary blend uses organic tea leaves and hints of mango and pineapple flavor.

"At Wendy's, our salads are all about fresh, on-trend ingredients that give you a great-tasting experience different from anything you can find in QSR," said Kurt Kane, Wendy's Chief Concept and Marketing Officer. "Our new Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad features a delicious blend of ingredients like feta, quinoa, fire-roasted vegetables and sundried tomatoes—this is a salad experience people are going to love." 

Every Wendy's salad starts with a foundation of fresh lettuce that we hand chop every day in every restaurant. For the Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad, we add fresh red onions and grape tomatoes, along with marinated, freshly grilled chicken and crumbled feta. A savory sundried tomato grain blend makes this salad stand out with quinoa, chick peas, white beans, fire-roasted vegetables and sundried tomatoes. It's all topped with a drizzle of creamy hummus and a light balsamic vinaigrette.

All these flavors culminate in a bold, delicious salad that delivers 80 percent of your daily recommended protein, one third of your daily recommended fiber, and a full day's recommended serving of vegetables1—all in one tasty salad!

Priced at $6.49 for a full-size serving and $4.49 for a half size2, a fully dressed, full-sized entrée delivers 40 grams of protein with only 450 calories. It's the better way to satisfy your lunch or dinner time hunger.

For a crisp and refreshing duo, pair it with HONEST® Tropical Green Tea made exclusively for Wendy's. The proprietary blend of Fair Trade Certified™, organic green tea leaves includes hints of mango and pineapple flavors and is sweetened with Fair Trade Certified™ organic cane sugar.
