All Wendy's U.S. restaurants are rolling out three new Garden Sensations(TM) salads this month: Spinach Chicken, Chicken Caesar and Southwest Taco.

"This is the first major enhancement of our popular Garden Sensations salad line. It's the next generation of fresh, bold, tasty salads from Wendy's," said Wendy's Executive Vice President Ian Rowden.

The Spinach Chicken Salad features crisp romaine lettuce and baby spinach leaves topped with marinated chicken, chopped egg and grape tomatoes. The salad comes with sweet and sour bacon dressing (2.5 grams of fat) and garlic croutons served on the side.

The Chicken Caesar Salad is made with romaine lettuce, chunks of tender chicken breast, grape tomatoes and shredded parmesan cheese. Caesar dressing and garlic croutons are served on the side.

The Southwest Taco Salad, which replaces the Taco Supremo, features Wendy's Chili, shredded cheddar cheese, and diced tomatoes atop a bed of mixed greens. This salad is served with Ancho Chipotle Ranch dressing and seasoned tortilla strips which were both very popular in test markets. Sour cream is also served on the side.

The suggested retail price for each of the salads is $4.19. National advertising will begin on March 13.

The three new salads are joining the popular Mandarin Chicken and Chicken BLT salads in the line.
