With the new El Pollo Loco Dos Locos Salads, each menu item captures that comfort food flavor yet has a balanced slant.

As Andy Rebhun, El Pollo Loco Senior Vice President of Marketing, said “We know health and wellness are top of mind for many this time of year, but El Pollo Loco recognizes that more consumers are craving balance and comfort, so we designed Dos Locos Salads to help you kick off the new year on a delicious note.” Each offering is what guests expect from the brand, “LA-Mex comfort food you truly crave.”

The three salads are: Cheesy Quesadilla Salad, Chicken Taquito Salad and Unwrapped Chicken Burrito Salad. Although it is difficult to pick a favorite, these salads are quite substantial. It is almost like having two meals in one bowl.

The Chicken Taquito Salad might become the most popular offering. Placing chicken taquitos and chopped-fire grilled chicken on super greens and lettuce, it is the combination of textures that satisfy. With fresh avocado, pico de gallo and queso fresco, one bite hits all the flavor profiles. Spicy, savory and even a touch indulgent, it shows that healthy can be hearty.

All salads can be enjoyed with either creamy cilantro dressing or Mexican vinaigrette. Either flavor would pair well with the three offerings.

These El Pollo Loco Dos Locos Salads will be available through March 16.
