I have always enjoyed Wendy’s for their Jr. Bacon Cheese Burger and Caesar Salad. So when I was given the opportunity to try Wendy’s Asian Cashew Chicken Salad for MomStart I was ready to hit the Wendy’s right around the corner from my house! As usual the service was great, the kids got their usual and I tried the Asian Cashew Chicken Salad. Whew!
Wendy’s salads are freshly made and this was obvious when I opened the container. The lettuce was crisp and fresh and plentiful. The unique thing about this salad to me was the fire-roasted edamame and spicy roasted cashews (that were not too spicy). Fantastic! How often to you find a fast food restaurant salad with edamame? Or cashews? Right here folks! The chicken was delicious and tender and the vegetables were generous. The dressing for the salad was, Light Spicy Asian Chili Vinaigrette. Blend those together, top it off with a great dressing and you have a great salad!
Those who are light handed with the spicy food, this is for you. This salad was spicy! I mean spicy spicy, need a glass of milk spicy. But don’t let that deter you, it has a deliciously sweet side too. It is one of those spicy sweet, keep coming back for more flavors. You know what I’m talking about.
Those who like the heat, this is for you. You will love this salad!
Finally, a healthy meal with only 280 calories and enough heat to satisfy that inner dragon. Branch out from those burgers and try it. You will be glad that you did!
Has this got you curious? Wendy’s would love to invite you to try it!
