This delicious salad tasting post has been brought to you by Chick-fil-A…
Yesterday, I hosted a salad tasting party with a few of my friends at Chick-fil-A. They are introducing three new salads and want opinions from real people, in my case, real moms, on what we think about their new #FreshMade salads.
I can tell you unequivocally, they are delicious. Truly fresh made.
I, along with my four guests, was very impressed with all three salads. Especially when we were informed by, Darla (the manager at the Chick-fil-A on Emory Road), that we could have any of the salads specially made. Chick-fil-A does cater to its customers. They want you to be happy with your food selections.
The three new salads we tried were…
- New Grilled Market Salad
- New Cobb Salad
- New Asian Salad
The consensus was that the New Grilled Market Salad was the best. However, I think we all agreed that when we order it again, we will probably ask for hot nuggets in place of the grilled chicken. Although, we loved that with the grilled chicken, the Grilled Market Salad is only 180 calories.
I know… AWESOME for those of us counting calories. Heck, at 180 calories, I could eat two of them. Just kidding. Really. Because one salad filled me up.
The New Grilled Market Salad is full of freshness. 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 choice of dressing).
The 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, and Ginger Wontons and Honey Sesame dressing (or choice of dressing).
It was a very close second for me. I mean very close. I love Asian food, and this salad was just that… Asian-inspired.
The 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. Served with Charred Tomato Crispy Red Bell Peppers and Avocado Lime Ranch dressing (or choice of dressing).
My four friends ranked the Cobb Salad as their second choice. It was a very close third for me. Yes, I said “very close” again, because I truly loved all three salads. Depending on the mood I was in, I might want the Cobb salad over Grilled Market Salad. Know what I mean?
One thing is for sure, all three of the new salads at Chick-fil-A are fresh made, delicious, hearty, and good for you. Okay, that’s four things.
Note: We all loved the Charred Tomato Crispy Red Bell Peppers and the Avocado Lime Ranch dressing. They could bag those Crispy Red Bell Peppers and bottle the Avocado Lime Ranch dressing and sell them as is.
So. Darn. Good.
All five of us would use the Avocado Lime Ranch on anything. On everything. #justsaying
