This Copycat Wendy’s Strawberry Salad Is Our Absolute Favorite
Wendy’s may be known for their juicy burgers with square patties, or their spicy chicken nuggets and chocolate frosty…but the real Wendy’s fans know that the Strawberry Salad is truly where it’s at. The Wendy’s Strawberry Salad is a summer staple and for good reason; it’s both delicious and nutritious.
What makes this salad so healthy is its use of fresh, nutrient-packed ingredients. The salad is made with a mix of greens, including a blend of spinach and spring mix, both of which are high in vitamins and minerals. It also includes fresh strawberries, which are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, and a handful of roasted almonds, which provide healthy fats and protein.
But the real star of this salad is the dressing. Wendy’s uses a light balsamic vinaigrette that complements the sweetness of the strawberries and the nuttiness of the almonds perfectly. The dressing is also low in calories and fat, making it a great option for those watching their diet.
If you’re looking to make this delicious and healthy salad at home, here’s a simple copycat recipe to try.
