03/25/2019
Freshly Made Salad, Freshly Added to Wendy's Core Menu

DUBLIN, Ohio, March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Balance can be hard to achieve when you're constantly on the go, but when it comes to finding middle ground between delicious flavors and quality ingredients, Wendy's has you covered with its fresh made-in-restaurant daily salad line. From savory to sweet and simple to bold, Wendy's offers a variety of flavor combinations that you wouldn't expect from fast food salads.

Wendy’s adds a Parmesan Caesar Chicken Salad to its core menu. Made with chopped romaine, greenhouse-grown grape tomatoes, an all-white meat grilled chicken fillet, parmesan crisps and a three-cheese blend of Asiago, Romano and Parmesan, this freshly made salad delivers on craveability and quality.

And now, Wendy's takes salad craveability even further with the addition of the Parmesan Caesar Chicken Salad to its lineup of freshly made salads. The newest addition puts a unique twist on the familiar Caesar salad, adding an Italian three-cheese blend and crunchy parmesan crisps atop the salad for a delicious, leafy bite. Made with chopped romaine lettuce, greenhouse-grown grape tomatoes and an all-white meat grilled chicken fillet, the salad is 410 calories even at its most indulgent, full size with all dry toppings included, and is still under 500 calories when paired with one packet of creamy Caesar Dressing by Marzetti® Simply Dressed®.

"Some people think they have to forfeit flavor for a quality, feel-good food option, but that just isn't true," said Kurt Kane, Wendy's Executive Vice President, Chief Concept and Marketing Officer. "Not only do Wendy's salads taste great, they're made with fresh produce in-restaurant every single day. You can't find this level of commitment everywhere, but our fans deserve the best and we're here to deliver it."

Wendy's freshly made salads fill the need for craveability and convenience, without sacrificing quality or taste. View the full lineup of Wendy's salads below, which can be customized to include a grilled, spicy or homestyle chicken fillet, or ordered without, and are available as full-sized and half-sized options. *
