The Fast Food Cliché Comes to an End with Wendy's Fresh Salads

DUBLIN, Ohio, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- To the haters, the doubters and the fast food skeptics – Wendy's wishes YOU a Happy National Salads Month. That's right, Wendy's breaks the fast food cliché and offers a variety of fresh salads, hand-prepared in-restaurant EVERY SINGLE DAY using quality ingredients. Plus, you can pick it up via the drive-thru in record timing.

While Wendy’s freshly prepares salads year-round, the girl with the red pigtails is especially excited to give green, leafy lettuce a shout out during National Salads Month this May. From Wendy’s newest salad combination, the Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Salad, to more veteran salads like the Taco Salad, Power Mediterranean, Spicy Chicken Caesar and Apple Pecan Chicken Salad – there is flavor for every taste bud.

In today's non-stop world, Wendy's remains committed to daily in-house ingredient prep: washing and chopping heads of lettuce, hand-slicing tomatoes and topping every salad entrée with a freshly grilled, all-white meat chicken breast. Thanks to the supply chain Wendy's established in 1969, fresh ingredients and produce are delivered to every restaurant two to three times a week, ensuring a freshness you can taste.  

Wendy's salad line-up is made to suit everyone's cravings, from savory to sweet and simple to bold—and they're all available in full size and half sizes.

  • Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Salad: Built on a blend of spring mix and iceberg and romaine lettuce, the salad is topped with a freshly grilled, all-white meat chicken breast, mozzarella cheese, and juicy grape tomatoes. From there, it's drizzled with a creamy basil pesto sauce, topped with crunchy French bread croutons and finished with the Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Light Balsamic Vinaigrette. It's only around for a limited time, so get it while you can!
  • Apple Pecan Chicken Salad: This menu favorite combines hand-picked red and green apples, roasted pecans, delicious cranberries and creamy blue cheese crumbles. Served on a bed of Wendy's signature lettuce blend and topped with freshly grilled chicken and Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Pomegranate Vinaigrette, there's a reason this salad has become customer's go-to pick.
  • Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad: Mediterranean flavor mixed with 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 topped with crumbled feta, freshly grilled, all-white meat chicken breast, creamy hummus and Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Light Balsamic Vinaigrette.
  • Taco Salad: Wendy's signature chili makes this dish a classic. Paired with hand-diced tomatoes and shredded cheddar cheese over a bed of hand-chopped iceberg and romaine lettuce, this is a fresh spin on the original Taco Salad. Continue the flavor indulgence by adding sour cream, crunchy tortilla chips and a fiery salsa blend made with ancho chili peppers and roasted tomatoes to kick this salad up a notch.

Find each of these salad options at participating Wendy's.
