THE best salad!! (fast food)

Recommended Posts

Guest Parham91x2

I got the Medeteranean salad at Wendys today because it was the only one they had and it was soooooooo good!!

 

It has tons of chicken breast, romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, cucumber and feta cheese all for 6.5 points and it was HUGE!!

They also give you a packet of honey roasted pecans which will add another 3.5 if you use it. The dressing is another 4 points.

 

The salad alone would be very satisfying and you could use your own dressing. I used all of it since I had alot of points to burn and it was yuuuuuuuuuuummmmmmy!!

I had it today, and I loved it. But how did you figure out the points? I went to the Wendy's site and they didn't have it!!

I found it at Dotties (http://www.dwlz.com). She has all the points for the salad individually so you can add or take off what you don't want to lower the points..dressing, pecans etc..

Now why didn't I think of looking at Dottie's site? I don't know :confused:

I had estimated it at 7 pts anyway, so I was close. It wasn't on the Wendys site when I looked last night. I'll check again.

I know what I'm getting for lunch tomorrow now!! I'll probably use my own FF dressing though.

I'll have to check that salad out, it sounds wonderful. I love the one from McDonald's. That one is called the grilled chicken bacon ranch. With the dressing they give you, it's only 6 points for the whole thing.


This is part of my journey, glad to have you all with me, to keep me company along the ride...

For this year they bought me Size 10!

Isn't it good? I've had the Mediterranean Salad several times and really like it.

Hi There-

Sorry I did'nt answer sooner.

With the McDonald's Grilled Chicken Bacon Ranch Salad, I get the Low Fat Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing. The salad is 5 points & 1 packet of dressing is 1 point. Plus. I don't even use half the dressing. They have other salads as well, but they are in my book, to high of point values.

Hope this helps.

What salads were you looking at?

I was looking at the McDonalds website. According to their nutritional info, the Grilled Chix Bacon Ranch Salad is 250 cal, 9g fat, 3g fiber=5 points and the ranch dressing packet is 170 cal, 15g fat, 0g fiber=5 points. The balsamic ving. would definitely work though! Thanks!

I discovered the McDonalds Fruit and Walnut Salad!! I think I'm instantly addicted. It was soooooo goood, and only 6 pts. Less if you leave off the walnuts, but that's the best part as far as I'm concerned.

I had the Mediterranean today & it was yummy! But I'm with Weight2Go....my absolute favorite is the fruit & walnut salad at McDonald's. It's really delicious....I adore getting to eat candied walnuts. Plus I'm already a grape addict & the apples taste fabulous dipped the yogurt. Highly recommended at 6 points!
