Nom Nom - Wendy's Berry Almond Chicken Salad

I had made a goal to eat out once a week.  Between sickness, vacation and other factors, I fell off the bandwagon on that goal.

However, I've been trying to make healthy choices when I do go out.  I plan ahead on what I want to eat.  When we were in St.Louis, they have a tradition of going to White Castle one night.  I thought about it and I asked them to stop first at Wendy's for a Berry Almond Chicken Salad.  I took it with me and still participated by eating one of their lil' cheeseburgers.  If I didn't have the salad too, I would have to eat a lot of the burgers to get filled up.

I got another one of those salads today, along with a small chili:

I love the flavors.  The Asiago cheese and the sea salt almonds provide a savory contrast to the sweetness of the berries and the dressing.  The chicken is full of flavor.  I got 11 blueberries and 8 pieces of strawberries.  There is also a half size portion available.

They give me 2 packets of the fat free raspberry vinaigrette, but I find 1 to be enough, saving some calories.  I save it for another time. I do use the whole packet of almonds.

I adore this salad.  Eric was surprised that I thought this was so good.  He thought I was just picking a salad because I was trying to be good and stay on plan.

Have you had this salad? What do you think?
