It’s Back….

I thought you should know!

The Southwest Salad

I had 2 already and I can NOT believe I’m advertising for McD’s but hey, it’s good and when you are married to a fast food junky, it’s great to have options.

The Salad with grilled chicken is 6 points (6.4 to be exact)(and that’s with tortilla strips!) and the the bag of dressing is 2.5. But trust me you DO NOT need the dressing. The salad is just perfect with a squirt of lime juice and there is a lime in the salad.

Honestly, it’s one of the most satisfying salads I’ve had out in awhile.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I saw that recently! I love that salad!

    I used to get those all the time and wondered if they would ever make it back to the menu. Guess they did. I agree that you do not need the dressing. The taste is terrific without it. Thanks for the good news!

    McD’s said it is STILL a “limited time only” salad until the end of the summer…but seriously, they need to rethink that! It’s THE salad of all fast-food salads out there!

    I honestly was able to walk into McDonald’s for lunch (smelling the french fry and cheeseburger yumminess), and order a SALAD. That’s pretty amazing within itself.

    Long live the SWSALAD! ;)

    I’ve heard they are great also and saw them on your list! I was going to ask what you thought of it, and now you have read my mind and answered my question. Nice!

    I usually eat the asian chicken with grilled chicken when my boys and I hit up McD’s. It’s 5 points and delicious!!!

    YEAH! Agreed, that salad is amazing. And the southwest style one at Arby’s is no comparison (in points or taste), which is what I have turned to in the absence of MDs version.

    Thanks for the heads-up Roni. I see a trip to MDs in my future.

    Roni, thanks for the info! Do you ever have a glass of wine or a beer?


    April 7, 2008

    yes! I was so sad when they were taken off the menu. In general, I hate fast food, but these are actually good and a great option when you’re traveling.

    -I am so totally excited about this!!!

    I love the southwest salad! I’m a vegetarian and even without the chicken it is delicious. I love feeling like I got all the extras-the tortilla strips, cheese, flavorfulness- without loading up on calories.

    OH I LOVE THAT SALAD TOO! I was excited to see that it’s back. I’m having that for dinner tonight.
