Wendy’s Berry Almond Chicken Salad Gift Card Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. The winner, Andrea G, has been notified. Thanks so much for participating!

Last week I told my kids we were going on a picnic with some of my “co-workers” (that’s my fancy way of saying blog friends). You see, the folks at Wendy’s invited us to a picnic lunch with a few other Kansas City bloggers, giving us the chance to try their new Berry Almond Chicken Salad.

My “co-workers”: Julie, Molly, Erin, me, Jenn and Candy

When we started driving the sky began to turn dark and the rain began to come down. The closer we were to Wendy’s (and the nearby park for our picnic) the darker the skies became. It became fairly obvious that our plans for a picnic were going to have to change.

What’d we do instead? Our group of 6 bloggers and all of our kids invaded the Wendy’s restaurant and had our own little picnic inside. (If you were at the Wendy’s we invaded, I have to apologize to you now… and to the man who said the sound of our children was music to his ears, I have a few I’d be happy to pass off to you for your listening enjoyment).

Candy captures the fun!

Before you know it we were all settled in with our salads, taking pictures and chatting away (and getting strange looks from people wondering why we were taking pictures of our food from Wendy’s). It wasn’t the ideal picnic, but it was so nice to catch up with local blogging friends.

The Berry Almond Chicken Salad was really quite good. With a combination of 11 different types of freshly chopped greens, fresh berries, roasted almonds, Asiago cheese, grilled chicken breast and a fat-free raspberry vinaigrette dressing, this is the perfect salad for your summer lunch and dinner cravings. I loved the entire flavor combination, and my kids loved to swipe the blueberries and strawberries right out of the bowl.

    Nice pictures!

    I like pumpernickel croutons, dried cranberries, and blue cheese crumbles. An amazing combination.

  2. Jennifer says

    Almonds slices, crasins, blue cheese or feta cheese crumbles, strawberries or blueberries! Yum!

  3. Kari says

    I love the combinations of either almonds or pecans and dried cranberries on a salad! And of course, bacon bits, eggs, cheese, and yummy veggies are always good on salad!

  4. Billie says

    Fresh peas, coby cheese, real bacon bits, ripe tomato and ranch dressing. And I do love hearts of palm too, but they are expensive. I usually just get those when we eat at the buffet at the Argosy!

  5. Dana says

    I can’t wait to try this salad, it sounds really good. I love to put sugar snap peas, cucumbers, cheese, sliced almonds or sunflower seeds, and chopped carrots.

  6. says

    I love to put dried cranberries, lightly candied pecans, honey almonds, sunflower seeds, cucumber, and mandarin orange slices on my spring mix salads with a balsamic dressing.

    Now I’m hungry.

    I like avocado, grape tomatoes, croutons, shredded cheddar cheese,cucumber,eggs, and that fake crab.

  8. Johannah B says

    Does grilled chicken count as a topping… plus tomatoes, red peppers and red onion…. oh and mushrooms too!

  9. says

    Looks like a fun lunch!
    I like dried fruit and nuts along with the normal salad items. And always use a raspberry/walnut vinaigrette on top!

  10. Rebecca says

    I love fruit! Sometimes turning it more into a fruit salad, than a salad salad… but it’s delicious.
