OK … so you pride yourself on being both a dedicated “Bacon Freak” as well as a legitimate gourmet, and you’re out on the road feeling hungry and wanting something truly deliciously satisfying. Or you’re busy on an important, “life changing” project and don’t really have time to cook up any of your monthly gourmet “Bacon Club” bacon to give a little pork protein pump-up to a nice healthy salad.

So what do you do?

Wendy’s has the answer … and I really think you are going to LOVE what they’ve come up with, cause I know that I most certainly do. Introducing the BLT Cobb Salad, one of four new Wendy’s creations designed to specifically accentuate and expand upon the highly acclaimed and increasingly popular “Garden Sensations” line of freshly prepared salads at the fast food franchise who has consistently been rising higher and higher up the ladder and now ranked # 3, behind “The B King” and “Micky D’s.”

Wendy’s, with it’s nearly 7,000 drive thru and sit down is one of the very few “burger joints” who seems to truly take both the taste and sensibilities of the gourmet diner, as well as the health conscious concerns of those seeking a truly premium quality salad … seriously!

First of all, they are using a lot of top notch ingredients that most popular “hamburger” stands and drive thru “greasy sporks” simply don’t bother to stock up on or utilize on their menus.

With the new Wendy’s BLT Cobb Salad, here’s what you get:

They start you off with an impressively diverse and eclectic blend of fresh lettuce and various “spring mix greens,” including red and green Romaine lettuce, red and green oak lettuce, red and green leaf lettuce, spinach, mizuna arugula, tatsoi, red chard and green chard. WOW, were talking about a collection of very impressive greens, including some that many supermarket produce sections simply don’t carry.

That masterful mix is then topped off with two nice, big hearty and flavorful strips of impressively decent quality, Applewood Smoked Bacon. This isn’t at all like at a lot of other places, where you have to actually have to get underneath a very bright light with a pair of tweezers and a microscope to actually verify the existence of bacon in your food, it’s definitely right there and very satisfying.

Add to that some delicious, freshly chopped tomatoes, authentic blue cheese crumbles, real, freshly boiled and chopped; hard-boiled eggs and freshly grilled chicken, served with a side of creamy Avocado Ranch dressing, that actually tastes like avocado … because it “IS!”

By the way, these salads are completely fresh and totally crisp, prepared right there on site, without any of that oh so typical fast food chain “pre-fabricated packages of plant processed produce.” Also I happen to know for a fact that the dressings are made by “Marzetti’s,” and actually are created especially for Wendy’s, 100% preservative free and offering up connoisseur cuisine flavors such as “Creamy Red Jalapeno,” “Lemon Garlic Caesar,” and “Pomegranate Vinaigrette,” as well as the rest of Wendy’s usual salad dressing choices.

All this, at just 670 calories, only 47 grams of fat and bulked to the brim with stomach satisfying, hunger killing “all natural” and totally delicious fiber / roughage that keeps us healthy, regular, trim and feeling full a LOT sooner than when eating the average “fast food salad served elsewhere.

Yep, all that for just under $6.00.

For those of you on a serious diet and wanting to take in even less calories and fat than that, the Wonderful Wizards of Wendy’s are ready, willing and able to substitute out the creamy Avocado Ranch dressing and replace it with Light Classic Ranch dressing. Or if you choose to go even lighter, they offer up a Fat Free French dressing … and we all know what all the latest tabloids and diet books are saying these days about the French … that they don’t get fat. so there you go, enjoy a truly great gourmet feat out on the road while sticking to your diet.

It’s the very best of BOTH worlds. Thank You Wendy’s!

    this salad was ruined by that nasty blue cheese make it a side option please

    What a shock to find BLUE CHEESE on the salad. I was prepared to pick off the bacon I could see in the picture, but from the photo on the drive thru menu, you can’t tell its blue cheese, its not identifiable. Make it on the side- or get rid of it since no actual Cobb salad would have blue cheese, seriously what were you thinking.
    So disappointed. Didn’t even eat the salad, had to toss it out. Not even my husband eats blue cheese, and he eats almost anything. Bring back the taco salad!!!

    How can it be freshly grilled when no Wendy’s has a grill? They use a skillet to cook their burgers (a.k.a. flat top).
