The Subway restaurant chain introduces the new Orchard Chicken Salad Sandwich, available for a limited time only.

This new sandwich combines diced chicken breast with chunks of apple, raisins, and cranberries tossed in light mayonnaise and served with lettuce and tomato on a choice of any bread.

"Adding crisp apples, with sweet cranberries and raisins, make a great, refreshing light sandwich," says Subway executive chef Chris Martone. "These fruits, with the addition of fresh vegetables, create a great sandwich or salad that is the perfect start to the summer season."

The Orchard Chicken Salad sandwich, available now through July 4, is a great choice for those looking for flavor, value, and healthier options. At just 8 grams of fat, a 6 inch Orchard Chicken Salad sandwich is a Subway Fresh Fit selection. As a footlong sandwich, it takes its place on the restaurant's famous $5 Footlong value menu.

"At Subway, we are always looking to create sandwiches and salads that not only surpass the high standards for flavor that our customers have come to expect, but are also low-fat options for a balanced diet," says Subway corporate dietitian Lanette Kovachi. "The Orchard Chicken Salad sandwich not only fits in perfectly in our selection of Fresh Fit meals, which include a low-fat sandwich with healthier-for-you sides, but also represent a distinct new taste that is packed with flavor."

Joining the Orchard Chicken Salad in the limited time offer spotlight is the Chicken Bacon Ranch and the Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sandwiches.
