Disclosure: I was provided with a free meal from Chick-fil-A in conjunction with this post. No other compensation was given. All opinions are 100% my own.
Have you been to Chick-fil-A in the past few weeks? Did you notice a new menu? They have been listening to their customers’ desire for healthier food and have made some changes. One of those changes involves the introduction of three new premium salads.
New Premium Salads
Aiming for tastes not commonly found in the fast food niche, Chick-fil-A® developed salads with “more unique ingredients.” In fact, the new premium salads will feature both premium and nutritious ingredients, such as romaine lettuce, mixed baby greens, honey Thai almonds, roasted corn, mandarin oranges, strawberries, blueberries and more. And, based on your dressing choice, each salad has between 180 and 430 calories.
One of my favorite changes, other than the many side options, was the introduction of the Avocado Lime Ranch dressing. It was a well-blended taste of both avocado and lime. I had the Cobb Salad and felt as though it was perfectly matched. But that is not the only new salad dressing unique to Chick-fil-A, you can also choose a Zesty Apple Cider Vinaigrette or Honey Sesame. Plus, the Cobb Salad and Asian Salad are both served with hot, sliced Chick-fil-A Nuggets.
Chick-fil-A Cobb Salad
Chick-fil-A Nuggets, pressure-cooked, sliced and served hot on a fresh bed of chopped romaine lettuce and baby greens, topped with shredded red cabbage and carrots, roasted corn kernels, a blend of shredded Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, crumbled bacon, diced eggs and grape tomatoes. Made fresh daily. Served with Charred Tomato Crispy Red Bell Peppers and Avocado Lime Ranch dressing (or guest’s choice of dressing). The salad is 430 calories and contains 39 grams of protein.
Chick-fil-A Asian Salad
Chick-fil-A Nuggets, pressure-cooked, sliced and served hot on a fresh bed of chopped romaine lettuce and baby greens, topped with shredded red and green cabbage, carrots and mandarin orange segments. Served with Honey Thai Almonds, Chinese Garlic & Ginger Wontons and Honey Sesame dressing (or guest’s choice of dressing). The salad has 330 calories and 13 grams of fat.
Chick-fil-A Grilled Market Salad
Grilled and sliced chicken breast served on a fresh bed of chopped romaine lettuce and baby greens, topped with shredded red cabbage and carrots, crumbled blue cheese and a mix of red and green apples, strawberries and blueberries. Served with Harvest Nut Granola, Roasted Nut Blend and Zesty Apple Cider Vinaigrette (or guest’s choice of dressing). The salad has 180 calories, 4 grams of fat and includes two servings of vegetables and one serving of fruit.
Chick-fil-A have also added calorie counts to menu boards in their restaurants to help aid their customers in making informed choices. Plus, you can find a meal calculator on their website that shows you nutrition totals based on your menu selections. Now you really can know exactly what you are ordering.
WINNERS: Sandra B, Timmy P, Wanda L, Donna S, Barb C.
