  1. Way overpriced for what you got. It also wasn’t spicy. Maybe they gave me the regular homestyle chicken, and there wasn’t enough avocado.

  2. Why does this salad contain so much sodium?. Initially, I was so excited when I saw an add for this new salad; however, once again I was disappointed after researching the nutritional values of this salad! Too much sodium and fat. What is the,source of sodium in this salad? Perhaps I can make adaptations.

    1. I think the protein from the spicy chicken salad comes from the chicken but I may be wrong…I am almost certain I am not wrong but it is still possible that I am.

  3. I’ve tried both the southwest chicken avocado sandwich AND salad. I did not either of them. Very expensive for amount of food you receive and tasteless. I prefer the TACO Salad 100% more.

  4. Ordered a combo — got back a few coins from a $10 bill. Ridiculously over-priced. Flavors did not complement each other — the southwestern sauce and pepperjack cheese flavors didn’t mesh with each other, and then they combined to overpower the more delicate avocado flavor. Won’t be ordering it again.

  5. When the salad has more fat than the sandwich I think they are doing something wrong.

  6. I just had the Avocado Southwest Salad.
    It was great! I loved every minute of it!
    Hoping it becomes a regular on the menu!

    1. Very keto friendly and the flavors were great together. I used the dressing also which added a little heat.
      2 thumbs up!!

  7. I have had the Southwest Avacado Grilled Chicken Salad at numerous locations in different states. There is so much iceberg hearts and white pieces under the dark green lettuce that it hardly makes this very healthy. I figured that Wendy’s has found a great place to stuff all their garbage pieces of lettuce and get paid for it too.

  8. a salad that filled me up . was delish.. lots of chicken and bacon and pepper jack and avocado and tomatos was 1st rate product. will get again..
