Could Your Salad Make You Fat?

August 8, 2007

Although they’ve got an almost sacred reputation among the calorie conscious, some salads are actually diet landmines. Burger King’s Tendercrisp Chicken Garden Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing has 680 calories, and so does Wendy’s Southwest Taco Salad. McDonald’s Bacon Ranch Salad with Crispy Chicken is only slightly better with 530 calories. If you’re looking to go low-cal at the drive-thru, it might be wiser to stick with a burger: BK’s whopper (w/o mayo) only has 510 calories, and McDonald’s Double Cheeseburger’s got 440.
