Wendy’s Makes Exciting New Menu Addition That Is the Perfect Meal for Summer

by Megan Molseed

Wendy’s may be known for its scorching Twitter comebacks and the mascot’s fiery red hair, but this summer the popular fast-food chain is cooling things down a bit. 

Wendy’s recently announced its go-to summer item earlier this month, and fans are ready for the returning favorite. 

“The newest craveable, freshly made innovation to hit the chain’s menu was inspired by sweet yet savory seasonal flavors,” noted a recent PopCulture article.  The article went on to note that the fan-favorite menu item is packed with summer-inspired flavor.

Wendy’s Brings Back a Summer Favorite

The sweet, fresh, and savory Summer Strawberry Chicken Salad promises a savory experience to anyone who tries the refreshing salad. 

It’s easy to see why this returning salad was a hit in the past.  Covered in hand-picked strawberries, with crisp, Applewood smoked bacon and a savory Tuscan cheese blend, the dish offers a treat for all tastes. The popular fast-food chain’s freshly grilled chicken tops off the newest addition to the menu.

A Taste Sensation For All In Summer Salad

Praline almonds and a tangy vinegarette top The Summer Strawberry Chicken Salad. All these fresh and savory ingredients sit atop a bed of fresh lettuce and the freshest “spring mix” available. 

Known for the never-frozen square beef patties, and delectable Frostys, Wendy’s knew the customers would appreciate the return of the Strawberry Chicken Salad.  

“Fans can not only have a salad they feel good about eating, but one that doesn’t sacrifice fresh, craveable flavors or cost a fortune,” said John Li, Vice President of Culinary Innovation for The Wendy’s Company.

Wendy’s has long prioritized bringing fresh food to the customers. Known for its dedication to freshness, the Wendy’s franchise is famous for its never-frozen beef patties and locally sourced produce. 

When discussing the newest item on the Wendy’s menu, Li also noted that the salad packs unbeatable, and seasonally relevant flavors.  

 “We’re intentional about crafting our salads for enjoyment, and it shows,” said Li. 

In addition to the Strawberry Chicken Salad Wendy’s offers a Jalapeno Popper salad, a spicy alternative to the classic salad, the Parmesan Caesar Salad which offers a delicious twist to a classic favorite. The zesty Southwest Avocado Salad brings a bit of the southwest to the table. Of course, there is the “always-a-favorite” Taco Salad.

The Wendy’s Apple Pecan Salad features crisp red and green apples, dried cranberries, roasted pecans, crumbled blue cheese.  Grilled chicken breast and the famous Pomegranate Vinaigrette tops off this delicious salad.

Of course, if you’re not in the mood for a salad, there are always Wendy’s favorites. It’s always the right season to grab a classic Wendy’s never-frozen hamburger. While there, make sure to add a side of the popular fast-food chain’s one-of-a-kind sea salt french fries. If you’re looking for a cool treat there is always the Wendy’s original Frosty
