News: Chick-fil-A - New Salads

Chick-fil-A launched three new salads today as well as revamping their Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap. As people look for more health-conscious fast food choices, companies are looking to improve or expand their offerings. As such, Chick-fil-A now offers a new Asian Salad, Cobb Salad, and Grilled Market Salad.

The Asian Salad features sliced Chick-fil-A Nuggets, shredded red and green cabbage, carrots, and mandarin orange segments, on a bed of chopped romaine lettuce and baby greens. It's served with Honey Thai Almonds, Chinese Garlic & Ginger Wontons, and Honey Sesame dressing (or your choice of dressing).

The Cobb Salad comes with sliced Chick-fil-A Nuggets, shredded red cabbage and carrots, roasted corn kernels, shredded Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, crumbled bacon, diced eggs, and grape tomatoes, on a bed of chopped romaine lettuce and baby greens. It's served with charred Tomato Crispy Red Bell Peppers and a Avocado Lime dressing (or any dressing you like).

The Grilled Market Salad consists of grilled, sliced chicken breast, shredded red cabbage and carrots, crumbled blue cheese, red and green apples, strawberries, and blueberries, on a bed of chopped romaine lettuce and baby greens. It's served with Harvest Nut Granola, Roasted Nut Blend, and Zesty Apple Cider Vinaigrette (or a choice of dressing).

The salads start at $6.79 in price.

The updated Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap provides a full daily serving of vegetables and lean chicken and comes on a new, all-natural, high-fiber flax bread. The wrap is filled with grilled chicken, green leaf lettuce, shredded red cabbage, carrots and a blend of Monterey Jack and cheddar and served with your choice of dressing (Avocado Lime Ranch is the default). The price starts at $4.89.

Here's a little bit of a neat tip: in Chick-fil-A restaurants, you can request a receipt with order-specific nutritional information at the cash register.

  1. All those salads actually sound very good, and the calorie-count for each is reasonable. I would want to try them if not for the $6.79 price tag... too pricey for me.

  2. Don't get the avacado Lime dressing...30+grams of fat. I ended up eating my salad plain.

  3. Too pricey and too many unwanted ingredients. I buy a salad for the effect of eating a "garden salad".

  4. I actually liked the older salads better. Have tried all the new ones and won't be buying them that often. The thing is, I used to like going to chik fil a since they offered something for the whole family. Now I end up not going since I don't like anything. I'd rather not make multiple stops

  5. Just had the Cobb and my co-worker had the Asian. Not bad. Pretty sure they are smaller than the old salads. We liked both, but I liked the old Southwest salad much much better. And about one fourth of the crispy red pepper things I received were hard as rocks. Almost chipped a tooth. I'll probably get one again but not almost every day like I did before.

  6. Don't like the new salads at all but I really loved the old Southwest and Garden salads. The Cobb salad was full of undercooked bacon that I ended up picking out and it really had no taste whatsoever. The crispy tomato pepper things were gross and the lime avacado dressing was way too salty (22% of daily rec) and too much fat and excess calories for me.
    They are also $7.19 plus tax where I live so guess I too will have to find another place for lunch salads during the work week. So sad to see the Southwest salad fade into history - it was sooo good!

    Loved the old Grilled Salad and the Charbriol w/Fruit, the new salads are disgusting as far as im conc

  8. Rip off! Today got ripped off and spent nearly $8 for the Cobb Salad. Totally ticked off. I actually liked the old strips salad, and the new is smaller and less chicken, less everything. What are they trying to do? At least give customers what they pay for it and its not this sorry salad!

  9. I agree with all. The new selection is nice but not for the $7 lunch price tag. Give me the Southwest with Spicy dressing $5 and some change. Wendy's does have the half salad for $4+. They are about the same size too.

  10. check out

  11. Help us bring it back

  12. help us spread the word

  13. Yeah the price is wrong, at least over here in southeastern PA. The salads here are closer to $7.50, making them even less appetizing. Miss the old salads and tired of looking elsewhere for decent food. Damn you Chick-Fil-A.

    I miss the strip salad. It was the only good fast food salad out there. It wasn't the strips that made it good. It was the salad itself. The tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage, cheese... The new salads are unappetizing in my opinion. If I want a decent salad with fruit or a generic cobb salad I can go anywhere. But no other fast food restaurant has broccoli on their salad. It was a novelty I truly appreciated. Plus it's terrible marketing to completely remove items before you even know if your consumers will like your new additions. Obviously a good many of us don't. But over the past year of Chick-fil-a nonsense in the news and politics I'm not surprised it's "your way or the highway". Regardless, listen to your customer.


    Maybe we can get enough people to sign and get the ones we like back.

  16. The market salad is to die for. I could eat one every day. I'm not usually one for fruit in my salad, but with the flavor combination of chicken, fruit and blue cheese crumbles, it hardly needs the apple vinaigrette dressing. Definitely worth the price and is big enough to share.
