The folks at Wendy's sent me a gift card to try their new Power Up Mediterranean Chicken Salad and I wanted to let you guys know about it too!
POWER MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN SALAD
I'm on Weight Watchers and this salad is 13 points. I did leave off the croutons - I'm not a big fan and it just didn't need them. It also came with two small packets of light balsamic vinaigrette dressing and I only used one.
Why Should You Go?
It's a good salad - not a great one. I like their BBQ chicken salad much better but that is 150 calories more (450 vs. 600) and 20 points vs. 13 (ouch). The chicken was really good - it was warm and cut into reasonable sized pieces. There were quite a few toppings as well but there wasn't a lot of any of them. The quinoa was barely noticeable but I really liked the hummus and feta. The hummus is unique in that it's more the consistency of ketchup but you can still taste it. The chicken was the best part - it's grilled and not at all dry.
All in all - a unique fast food salad for sure and I enjoyed it!
