Recently, a friend and I ate at a Wendy’s restaurant. I had two burgers and fries and my friend ordered their Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad. My friend was surprised by how large the salad was and asked me if I wanted half of it. I gladly partook of the opportunity to try this salad and found it to be very satisfying. Presented here, is one food writer’s product review of Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad.
Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad is a large item. The net weight of this salad is 421 grams, which is approximately 15 ounces. According to the product’s nutritional facts chart, one full salad counts as one serving. Personally, I think that this salad is big enough to provide two servings.
The regular retail price charged for one Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad at Hartford, Connecticut area Wendy’s restaurants is approximately $6.35. When I first heard the price of this salad, I thought I was hearing things. The price seemed very high to me and I still think that it is a little over – priced, for a fast food restaurant item. But, after seeing how big it is and actually eating some of the salad, I realize that in today’s economy, the price is not so un – reasonable.
Several appealing textures are offered in Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad. The romaine lettuce greens are fresh and crisp, the spicy chicken breast is tender and expertly – cooked, the tomatoes are fresh and juicy, the asiago cheese is shaved into small, complementary pieces, the French bread croutons are crisp, but not overly – hard and the Caesar dressing is suitably thick and it clings to the other ingredients well.

Taste / Flavor
Through the years, I have eaten and prepared many Caesar salads. While some have been better than others, most of them have looked and tasted largely the same. Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad is definitely a cut – above most of the versions that I have eaten.
The romaine greens are impeccably – fresh and fairly – uniform in size. The spicy chicken breast is delightfully – seasoned and the grape tomatoes add a sweet and juicy flavor that contrasts well with the romaine lettuce.
The asiago cheese lends some smooth creaminess to the item, the French bread croutons are also nicely – seasoned and the Caesar dressing adds a nice garlic and lemon flavor to the salad. All put together, these components form a very flavorful salad that is quite satisfying.
Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad is packaged in a fairly sturdy plastic bowl that features a tight – fitting lid that helps to keep left – over salad fresh. The bowl is easy to open and re – close and a plastic knife and fork are included with the salad. The excellent Caesar dressing for this salad comes in a separate, sealed packet.
This Caesar salad is a large and very fresh item that features several tasty ingredients. The spicy chicken is seasoned just – right, the French bread croutons are delicious and the Caesar dressing is fairly exciting. Big enough for two side dish – sized servings, Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad, is nicely – presented and quite satisfying. If you can afford it, I highly recommend it.
