Step away from the Bourbon Bacon Burger because the new Wendy’s Summer Strawberry Chicken Salad is here. While summer and salads go hand in hand, this new Wendy’s menu offering is more than just a pile of greens. While different from the options on the Made to Crave menu, Wendy’s delivers a flavorful experience that guests will want to savor again and again.

While other quick service restaurants have skipped over the salad innovations, Wendy’s knows that salads are a key component to its menu. But, those salads need to be more than just of bowl of greens that are lacking in flavor and freshness.

With the new Wendy’s Summer Strawberry Chicken Salad, this salad option is a quite satisfying without becoming too heavy. By focusing on fresh, seasonal flavors, that bowl is a bounty of deliciousness that even the biggest burger lover will want to try.

According to Wendy’s, the salad features “hand-picked strawberries, crisp Applewood smoked bacon and a savory Tuscan cheese blend finished off with warm freshly grilled chicken, praline almonds, and a sweet and tangy Champagne Vinaigrette–all on top of a bed of freshly chopped lettuce and spring mix.”

With so much packed into that menu description, it could be overwhelming. Still, each food ingredient builds on the other. One moment a bite is sweet, and the next moment the bite is savory. Following a combination of textures to add to eating satisfaction, this salad could be the hottest menu item of the season.

As seen with this new menu addition, Wendy’s is committed to having a well balanced menu. While there is always a decadent burger option on the menu, the reality is that burger cannot be the only option. From chicken sandwiches to breakfast, the goal is to give every guest variety, which brings them back time and again. Menu options are key to customer loyalty.
