Eating better just got a whole lot tastier with the addition of Wendy's new Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad to its permanent menu lineup. Filled with bold flavors and packed with deliciously satisfying ingredients, this salad makes eating better…better.

"At Wendy's, our salads are all about fresh, on-trend ingredients that give you a great-tasting experience different from anything you can find in [quick serve,]" says Kurt Kane, Wendy's chief concept and marketing officer. "Our new Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad features a delicious blend of ingredients like Feta, quinoa, fire-roasted vegetables, and sundried tomatoes. This is a salad experience people are going to love."

Every Wendy's salad starts with a foundation of fresh lettuce that we hand-chop every day in every restaurant. For the Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad, we add fresh red onions and grape tomatoes, along with marinated, freshly grilled chicken, and crumbled Feta. A savory sundried tomato grain blend makes this salad stand out with quinoa, chickpeas, white beans, fire-roasted vegetables, and sundried tomatoes. It's all topped with a drizzle of creamy hummus and light balsamic vinaigrette.

All these flavors culminate in a bold, delicious salad that delivers 80 percent of the daily recommended protein, one third of the daily recommended fiber, and a full day's recommended serving of vegetables, all in one tasty salad.

Priced at $6.49 for a full-size serving and $4.49 for a half size, a fully dressed, full-sized entrée delivers 40 grams of protein with only 450 calories. It's the better way to satisfy your lunch or dinner-time hunger.
