What Kind of Salads Does Wendy’s Have?

By Lana Kisner | December 7, 2023

Wendy’s salad menu may be small, but it’s definitely mighty. It includes a handful of flavorful options that come topped with a variety of tasty ingredients. Another big plus is that all Wendy’s salads are made fresh daily and hearty enough to be a filling lunch or dinner meal. If you’re wondering which is the best salad at Wendy’s, read on to find out my rankings based on overall taste.

The Cobb salad is a classic, and Wendy’s version is actually quite flavorful. It comes with chopped salad greens topped with grilled chicken, applewood smoked bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, tomato, hard-boiled eggs, and crispy onions. I would definitely recommend pairing it with ranch dressing to bring out all the more flavors.  

3. Taco Salad

You can’t really go wrong with Wendy’s Taco salad. It’s crunchy and savory, and scooping it up with your tortilla chips makes it a lot of fun to eat. This is my go-to option when I’m craving tacos. It comes with lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, tomato, salsa, and sour cream. It’s served with crisp tortilla chips on top, but the famous Wendy’s chili is the final ingredient that makes this salad stand out.

2. Parmesan Caesar Salad

Wendy’s version of the Caesar salad is creamy and delicious. It replaces the classic croutons with a mix of crunchy seasoned croutons and parmesan crisp crumbles. This actually adds a lot of flavor depth to the salad. Of course, there are also grilled chicken pieces on top to make it a complete meal. Without a doubt, their Caesar dressing is the only way to go here.

1. Apple Pecan Salad

The Apple Pecan is my favorite salad at Wendy’s, hands down. It doesn’t taste like a typical fast-food salad and definitely has a more premium vibe to it. It comes with salad greens, blue cheese crumbles, grilled chicken, apple pieces, dried cranberries, and roasted pecans. The default dressing is pomegranate vinaigrette, and I recommend sticking with it because it ties all the flavors beautifully. This is a fresh-tasting salad that also happens to take care of any sweet tooth cravings you may have, which is a big plus.
