Apple Pecan Chicken Salad

The number-one salad on my list is easily the Apple Pecan Chicken Salad at Wendy’s. This salad is so delicious and healthy tasting that it’s hard to believe it came from a fast-food joint. I absolutely love the Apple Pecan Chicken Salad because it’s incredibly refreshing and it’s got such a great crunch to it with the pecans and apple chunks. Not only do they put apples on this salad, but they use both red and green apples for diverse flavor. I think my favorite part about the Apple Pecan Chicken Salad, besides the blue cheese crumbles, is the Marzetti Simply Dressed Pomegranate Vinaigrette dressing. 


Taco Salad

The next salad I want to recommend to anyone visiting Wendy’s is the Taco Salad. This salad has a bit of Mexican flair to it that keeps things interesting and makes it a bit heartier than some other ones. What sets this salad off, for me, is the heaping portion of Wendy’s famous chili that they top it off with. Not only that, but it also comes with crunchy tortilla chips, Wendy’s signature lettuce blend, shredded cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, salsa, and sour cream. This is one of the most filling salads on the menu in my opinion. I usually grab this salad for lunch because it keeps me full all day long.  


Harvest Salad

The next Wendy’s salad I’d like to point your attention towards is the Harvest Salad. Now, unfortunately, the availability of this salad will vary depending on where you are since it’s been discontinued in most places. That being said, I really hope the Harvest Salad makes a comeback because it had everything you could ever really need in a salad. The Harvest Salad consists of juicy grilled chicken slices, red and green apples, dried cranberries, lettuce, feta cheese, brown sugar walnuts, and applewood smoked bacon. If you’re ever at Wendy’s and see it on the menu, definitely order it.

Up next is a Wendy’s take on an absolute classic salad. The Parmesan Caesar Chicken Salad is the perfect chicken caesar salad, in my opinion. They make this salad fresh every day with romaine lettuce, juicy grilled chicken breast, various Italian cheeses, parmesan crisps, and creamy caesar dressing. You definitely need to check this salad out when you get a chance. My favorite part has to be the crunchy parmesan crisps. I’ve never had a salad that came with parmesan crisps like the Wendy’s offers. They are tasty and add the perfect crunch to the salad. 


Side Caesar Salad

Up next is the Side Caesar Salad. Much like the previous entry on my list, it’s made fresh daily with romaine lettuce blend, a three-cheese combination, bacon bits, and, of course, the zesty caesar dressing for the ultimate flavor. This salad is the absolute perfect size and makes the ideal substitute for French fries if you’re feeling a bit health-conscious. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a small salad to complement the rest of their meal at Wendy’s. The Side Caesar Salad isn’t just one of my favorite salads, it’s one of my favorite sides, too. 


Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad

Next up is the Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad at Wendy’s. This is the ultimate Southwestern-style salad that will surely satisfy you. After all, salads can get a bit boring sometimes, but not this one. The Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad consists of Wendy’s signature lettuce blend, pepper jack cheese, tomatoes, avocado, applewood smoked bacon, and juicy, tender chicken breast. Don’t forget the zesty Southwest Ranch Dressing that comes with it. My favorite part about this salad is the avocado, by far. There’s just something about the combination of avocado with the chicken and bacon that can’t be beaten.
