Ladies Lunch with Wendy’s new salads #NewSaladCollection #Wendys

It's been a long winter, and getting together with friends for lunch has not been easy, especially with my little man in tow.  But the sun is finally shining, the snow is gone, and just last week I got to go out with a couple friends, including my blogging buddy Kim, for a Ladies Lunch at Wendy's.  We sampled the new salads, there are 3 to choose from - Asian Cashew Chicken, BBQ Ranch Chicken and Taco Supremo Salads.



We both went to BBQ Ranch Chicken and ended up sharing one because it was so big!  Luckily I'll know better for next time, Wendy's offers half portions too - perfect!  These 3 new salads are 50% lower in fat grams, 29% lower in sodium, and 61% lower in saturated fat, so you can't go wrong for this lunch!




We had a great lunch chatting about work, kids spring and summer sports, shopping for summer clothes and our favourite sandals. I've already been sneaking into my flats, muddy out or not, and I know by next week I'll have my beloved flip-flops on!  Are you dying for sandals too?



After tasting this yummy salad we also got chatting about backyard BBQ's, the BBQ Ranch Chicken salad is like a savory backyard BBQ in a bowl! Made fresh daily with ingredients that you see around your grill, such as fire roasted corn, freshly diced tomatoes, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, applewood smoked bacon, a honey BBQ sauce and topped with warm chicken.  It was also served with a BBQ Ranch dressing, made with real buttermilk, parmesan cheese, ancho chili peppers, honey and brown sugar - delish!


Did you know Wendy's was the first restaurant that brought the salad bar to quick service customers more than 30 years ago? And there's a salad spinner in every Wendy’s kitchen because they wash and hand-chop heads of romaine and iceberg every day and mix it with a triple-washed leafy spring mix made with 9 different greens!


Now that Spring has sprung, I recommend you grab a gal pal and catch up at Wendy's over a salad too, the perfect chance to reconnect!  Click to learn more about the new chef inspired Salads and to see more videos of Girlfriends at Wendy’s Eating Salads and Talking About Stuff.

  2. I grabbed two for me and hubby tonight for supper, all this talk about the salads on all the sites had me running out to grab some, but I won't know what the dressing tastes like because the dressing for the Asian Chicken was recalled so I had to get Italian dressing boooo

  4. The salad you got looks delicious and hearty! I don't eat out often but it's nice to know that there are healthy options if I do go.

  5. I think it's very recommendable that Wendy's has brought out new salads, it does get boring when there's only ever the same 1 or 2 salads available.
