Impulsive Buy reader Brad sent us this photo of a poster for a new Asian Salad that’s being tested in Chicago. For those of you who have an encyclopedia of McDonald’s products in your head, you’re probably flipping through it because you could’ve sworn McDonald’s had an Asian salad before. Well, let me save you the trouble and tell you there was one.
Update: We’ve gotten reports that the Asian Salad has also been spotted in Baltimore and Southern California.
Much like the one from the mid-2000s, this updated version features edamame, mandarin oranges, snow peas, red bell peppers, almonds, and is available with either grilled or crispy chicken. We do not know if the salad comes with the same Newman’s Own All-Natural Low-Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing that was passed out with the original Asian Salad, but since McDonald’s still uses Newman’s Own dressings it’s probably safe to say that it does.
So what’s different?
Well, this one has got a greens upgrade. The previous version had a spring mix and iceberg lettuce, but this one has a “romaine, spinach and kale salad blend.”
If you’ve tried it, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
