Food & Lifestyle | Wendy’s Strawberry Mango Chicken Salad & Contest
Yes, I know – I love me some good fast-food joints and my love affair with them is no secret. I’ve already told you about the special ones, Wendy’s being one them – we go way back! The nostalgia that Wendy’s resonates with me will be a constant and the fact that their menu is one of the better ones, I have to say they’re on top of my list for my constant on-the-go lifestyle. If I’m up and about and I have the choice, Wendy’s does trump everything else. As I’ve gotten older, both my palette and cravings have changed – those cravings have turned to healthier or lighter options. Being constantly on the go, I still have to have the convenience and immediacy that a lets say a burger may provide. Enter Wendy’s Strawberry Mango Chicken salad!
Looks like I’m not the only one looking for quick & easy ways to make my life easier. Nearly three-quarters (72%) of Canadians say they’re looking for shortcuts to make their lives easier during the summer months, according to a recent survey commissioned by Wendy’s Canada. Their solution? Craveable summer salads that use fresh, quality ingredients prepared daily that are fast, fresh and convenient.
The study revealed a few other summer time-consumers that Canadians are faced with, including commuting or traffic (55%), laundry (28%), dishes (28%), and meal preparation (24%). So while Wendy’s doesn’t cut corners, they’re helping to make Canadians’ lives a little easier (and more delicious).
The latest seasonal salad to join the Wendy’s roster of healthy options is the Strawberry Mango Chicken Salad, made with crisp lettuce and ripe strawberries hand-cut in-restaurant daily (Actually!). The sweet taste of mango and strawberry is paired with the tangy hint of crumbled feta cheese, and added crunch of sunflower seeds.
“In Canada, Wendy’s is known by for serving top quality salads and the new Strawberry Mango salad is the perfect, healthy choice for customers,” says Lisa Deletroz, Marketing Director Wendy’s Canada. “Fresh lettuce and ripe strawberries are hand-cut in-restaurant daily – most other places simply don’t take the time to do that. The sliced strawberries, sweet mangoes and freshly grilled chicken create a deliciously different flavour combination for the summer.”
As always, I want to give you guys the opportunity to try the things I get to experience so I’m giving you a chance to win a $60 Wendy’s giftcard to get to your local Wendy’s and try the Strawberry Mango Chicken Salad!
