Top 10 Best FAST FOOD SALADS!!!
Sometimes you just want to go to some of the
best fast food places but not eat artery clogging
foods that will make you feel like a puffer
fish and yet still hungry an hour later.
That’s why you’d probably go ahead and order
a salad but in many of these cases, you’re
not aware of what’s actually tasty and worth
spending that hard earned cash on.
As a result of that basic want, people started
to gain interest in certain fast food salads
as opposed to others.
So let’s order up a heaping serving of veggies
with these top 10 fast food salads.
Cantina Power Bowl – Taco Bell
Taco Bell does a lot of things right and we’ve
gotta say that their salads, specifically
the Cantina Power Bowl is one of those things.
It may not look to appealing but it most certainly
does taste good with some fire-grilled white
meat chicken, guacamole, romaine lettuce,
reduced-fat sour cream, and avocado ranch
Alongside all of that, it’s got a nice reduced
fat sour cream on top of Latin rice and black
beans and cheddar cheese.
It’s safe to assume that this salad is not
going anywhere anytime soon, as it’s not very
traditional and doesn’t have competition.
You see, most fast food joints will just slap
some lettuce, sauce, and chicken together
and send it out to serve but at Taco Bell,
it’s clear they wanted to go above and beyond
by creating a salad that few people have ever
Not only should this particular one be tasty
but since it’s got beans, it might be filling
enough for people who don’t often have satisfied
stomachs after a salad.
The salad is actually quite good for lunch,
especially if you’re someone who might work
in an office with a low calorie burning job.
Grilled Market Salad – Chick-Fil-A
This salad from Chick-Fil-A is the kind that’s
eaten by someone who obviously enjoys choices.
There are so many great salad dressing options
to choose from, including honey sesame.
On top of that, you get tiny packets of granola,
roasted nuts, blue cheese, and even what’s
been called the holy trinity of berries, as
in blueberries, strawberries, and cranberries.
As for the meat aspect of this salad, there’s
the rather traditional grilled chicken that
adds some much-needed flavor, mixed up with
some strings of radish and carrot.
It’s still a salad with lettuce, but has certain
aspects of a fruit bowl mixed into it and
that really does help sell it to people, especially
those of us who are out and about.
However, the bottom line is will this be a
filling salad for the average person?
Chances are yes, due to the various healthy
foods in it, with the added advantage of having
a low calorie count.
You see, it’s been estimated to sit at around
two-hundred or so calories, pre-dressing,
which means that it leaves mathematical room
to eat extra snacks later in the day.
The grilled market salad, with all its contents,
could act as a portion of great energizing
food for anyone who might be going to or coming
from a workout.
Original Grilled Chicken Salad – Carl’s
If you’ve ever wanted a salad that has got
a plentiful amount of vegetables it’s got
to be from Carl’s Jr.
In particular, you’ve got the option to slap
in cucumber, tomatoes, and onion, all of which
are large in size, which should mean that
you’re getting your money’s worth.
As for the green and actual typical salad
area of things, it’s pretty standard and won’t
surprise anyone who’s ever seen a salad before
in their life.
If you’re curious about the chicken, it’s
good but there’s room for improvement.
It’s been said that while it does taste like
it was on a grill at some point in time, it
could have possibly been seasoned more or
stayed on the heat a little longer.
In general, Carl’s Jr has a pretty good salad,
especially since they incorporate a generous
serving of vegetables.
This can be seen as beneficial for two reasons,
the first is that anyone on a diet might be
able to get their daily recommended amount
of veggies in one small meal.
The second being that since the portions are
large, the individual might not need to consume
something later on to carry them through until
the next meal.
Though, vegetables aren’t really something
many people like to eat first thing in the
morning, so you should probably save this
for lunch or dinner.
Chicken Club Salad – Burger King
Chicken is rather common in salad and with
that in mind, it’s also commonly prepared
the same way.
However, this is not the case when talking
about the chicken club salad from Burger King,
a brand not known for their salads.
This salad can be seen as patchy due to the
claim that it has several fried items in it.
Some of the fried items include bacon, croutons,
and fried chicken.
This is something that might go against what
many customers are trying to do: eat better
and possibly lose some weight.
These fried items might not be helping them
in that sector, especially since there isn’t
a ton of vegetables, apparently – the only
type other than lettuce is the cherry tomatoes.
Although, despite the mild lack of health
benefits for this salad, in particular, the
taste is quite good.
How could it not be?
Everything that’s in it generally tastes decent
when eaten alone, especially fried chicken.
When it’s all mixed together, it has the power
to act like a flavor bomb just went off inside
of your mouth.
While it may not be entirely healthy, you
could have it every now and then during your
lunch break or perhaps even on a cheat day.
Turkey Breast Salad – Subway
Subway has done what they do best when it
comes to lettuce, combining it with various
vegetables to make a low calorie, nutrient-packed
The turkey breast salad is something that
you could actually consume without needing
to drown the plate in a terrible dressing.
However, if you’d like, you can get some dressing
to further your experience, but expect it
to add to the overall calorie and sodium count.
While consuming the spinach, black olives,
red onions, green peppers, cucumbers, and
tomatoes, you get a nice balanced taste for
your tongue’s buds.
On top of that, you can probably guess that
it’s a fulfilling meal that won’t leave you
going back to the preparation counter asking
for more due to you still being hungry.
While this variation may not have the mouth-watering
fried chicken that everyone loves, it does
come with some turkey breast.
This means that it not only has something
unique in terms of the meat provided, but
also has the ability to act as a substitute
for a traditional meal if you’ve got to work
during the holidays.
Once again, you’re really only going to want
to eat this during the lunch break since it
does seem like a heavy gut hitter.
This means that you’ll have more time to digest
and use what you’re consuming.
Bacon Ranch Salad – McDonald’s
Over at McDonald’s, the bottom line in terms
of salads is ultimately making it appetizing
and at the very least somewhat healthy.
This is precisely the case when talking about
their bacon ranch salad, as the quality comes
off as high despite the fact that the customer
has the option to purchase it alongside crispy
Overall, the fast food chain manages to keep
this salad simple.
It has everything one could want in it: tomatoes,
meat, bacon and various forms of leafy greens.
It’s clear that when it was considered for
the menu, diversity in what they were going
to offer within the salad was high on the
However, in some cases, it may be seen as
a little expensive compared to some of the
restaurant’s other options, but it’s safe
to say that you’re stretching the dollar pretty
far when buying it.
In this case, the idea that a fancy style
of food is lighter and should be eaten later
on could come into effect.
You see, McDonald’s did create a good salad
but it certainly isn’t anything that you need
to jump up and down about, this is why it’s
perfect for a simple, late night dinner option.
Apple Pecan Chicken Salad – Wendy’s
This Wendy’s salad may not be as simple as
our previous one but it does manage to hold
its ground in the department of being unique.
You see, this can be seen as one of the least
traditional salads that can be found on a
fast food menu.
It comes packing both red and green apples,
sweet dried cranberries, blue cheese crumbles,
roasted pecans, a lettuce mix, pomegranate
vinaigrette dressing, and just to add something
typical to the batch, grilled chicken.
What this means is that it does contain some
aspects of what you might picture a salad
looking like but it certainly won’t taste
The apples can provide a mildly sweet and
sour taste with a strong crunch.
As for the dressing, it’s where everything
One cannot simply consume this without the
dressing, as it’s what brings harmony to
all these flavor types.
The dressing brings that together by creating
a common enjoyment between everything and
limiting the more powerful tastes of certain
Mixing these fruits and tastes together makes
us believe that it’s a great option for breakfast,
so long as it’s available for purchase during
those hours at your local Wendy’s.
The apples will remind you what time of day
it is, and the pecans will give you a good
protein boost in the early morning.
Spicy Southwest Salad – Chick-Fil-A
The spicy southwest salad from Chick-Fil-A
has the well-known and loved fast food brand’s
chicken in it partnered with some tex mex
flavors, corn, beans, chili-lime pepitas,
green lettuce, bright red tomatoes, and even
On top of all of that, there’s even a recommended
dressing for it, chili-lime vinaigrette, which
is great because more often than not, the
customer makes the choice in that department
which can result in the loss of flavor due
to a poorly-paired salad dressing.
All this does come out at a price though,
it costs around $8.99.
However, that’s made up for when you realize
that this isn’t an appetizer and can really
give your stomach a ride for its money in
the form of not grumbling around before the
start of the evening.
Alongside that, it’s very rare to come across
salads that have got tortilla strips in them,
which can add some much-needed salt to the
mix in some cases.
Now, for those of you that enjoy the zing
of some spicy food, this would be perfect
to eat at a sales meeting as you’ll get the
juices and energy flowing at the table.
If you’re not at a sales meeting then you
can probably get away with wanting to spice
up the afternoon by doing something interesting
Charbroiled Chicken Salad – Carl’s Jr
Unfortunately, Carl’s Jr didn’t manage to
create some wild salad that would have created
brand specific fans.
That’s totally fine when you consider that
they created one of the lower calorie fast
The charbroiled chicken salad is said to be
only around 280 calories without the old-fashioned
burden of dressing.
To add to it all, it’s even high in protein
and manages to slap the eater in the face
with all the typical ingredients.
These, of course, include chicken, iceberg
lettuce, some tomatoes, and red onions.
While this particular meal may not seem all
that exciting, it is known as one of the popular
food items on the menu board.
Now, there’s obviously a good reason for that
– it tastes good.
One thing many restaurants do is not include
fresh ingredients in their salads as they’ll
often sit unsold, but that may not be the
case when talking about Carl’s Jr.
You see, food can taste decent in many states,
burnt or undercooked, but it will never taste
good if it’s not fresh.
Having fresh lettuce could result in a confident
crunch as well as a tasteful blend that usually
comes with eating a home cooked meal.
Carl’s Jr understood this when creating this
This is yet another one of those salads that
you simply enjoy having after a late night
out with your friends.
It’s not so heavy that you’ll be up until
six in the morning but it’s also not light
enough to say that you’re going to have a
headache after eating it due to hunger.
BBQ Chopped Chicken Salad – Panera Bread
Now, there are many rare occurrences that
come into existence, one of them being barbecue
ranch sauce on a salad.
This doesn’t mean it isn’t done when looking
into what Panera Bread offers its customers.
Other than the unique sauce, people manage
to get romaine lettuce, the ever rare tortilla
strips, black beans, chicken and roasted corn.
All of which is surprisingly good when slapped
The only real issue some people might find
is the BBQ ranch dressing but there’s always
the chance a consumer can ask for something
Overall, Panera Bread has easily come up with
one of the most interesting salads on the
This is why it’s clear that this salad is
actually something people want to actively
recreate in their kitchens and recipes attempting
to do that actually do exist.
However, individuals can try to copy it but
nothing ever comes close to the original,
especially if one tiny ingredient is missing,
it’d be like trying to recreate McDonald’s
Big Macs and french fries.
Much like some of the spicy foods that you’d
enjoy at lunch, it’s perfect for that meal
of the day.
You see, it’s got everything you need to have
a conversational piece during and after the
