  1. I absolutely love this salad. I never thought all the ingredients would go together, but they do. The apple balsamic vinaigrette dressing is what tops it off. Just wish I could buy the dressing.:-(

    1. You can buy it, do an online search for Marzetti Apple Balsamic dressing, you will find Marzetti’s site and can
      order the packets in boxes. Some of their dressings can be ordered by the bottle, but last time I checked, this
      was available only in packets.

  2. I tried this as a healthier alternative and I actually really enjoyed the salad but I didn’t care for the dressing I almost think a regular italian dressing would have been better

    1. This is not healthy. It comes with bacon and cheese. The dressing is also flavored with bacon fat. Gross!!!

  3. Strawberry fields salad but the wendy’s on jericho turnpike closest to Syosset didn’t add the bacon. Sad.
    Can you tell them how it should be done, please?

  4. I was smitten by this salad, but when I found out how bad it was for me, I started to make my own version.
    I took the salad home and made a list of the ingredients. Then made the vinaigrette myself.

    I took the salad dressing package home. It is called Apple Balsamic Vinaigrette. I took the ingredients from it and made my own and it tastes just as good. I will tweak it a bit more tho. I have skipped the Soy Bean Oil as soy was not meant for human or animal consumption, and added my own oil of choice which is peanut oil or light olive oil. I usually add other things that I like that are good for me, so it will not taste exactly like Wendy’s dressing. If anyone wants my recipe, let me know and I will post it. And I do not add any salt.

    I make my own salad and make a large amount and put each ingredient in separate containers. That way when I want another salad, It is just like going to a salad bar, I choose what I want at that specific time.
    When I have ordered the Wendy’s Salad, I tell them to skip the things I don’t like, i.e.: cheese, bacon, and have used their dressing, but discontinued it when I found out it contained bacon fat, and other not so good stuff. I don’t like any off the shelf salad dressings anyway as they all contain soy or canola oils, which is not good for your liver. Soy messes up your hormones, etc. and canola has its own drawbacks and it’s highly unlikely one is able to get organic, even if they say it is. Too much GMO that they won’t say it is.
    Have a great day everyone.

  5. My absolute favorite salad. I actually found this website looking for a copy cat recipe for the vinaigrette.
