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.

    My fav salad toppings would be hot house cucumbers, tomatoes, red peppers, carrots and a balsamic vinegarette.

    I’m not necessarily interested in the giveaway though I enjoy fruit and nuts and sunflowers in my salad, as well as cucumber and feta cheese. But I wanted to respond because I’m actually from the town of Berryville, VA where they filmed the commercial so I thought it was neat to see your post about it!

  3. Stephanie O. says

    My favorite salad toppings… fresh mushrooms, green peppers, cucumbers, grilled chicken. Or fruit instead of veggies, like dried cherries, apples and pecans.

  4. Chris says

    I love feta cheese and raisins on my salad. It doesn’t take much to add a nice punch to the flavor and make you feel like you’re indulging in a guilty pleasure when you’re not!

  5. Susan says

    I love feta on any salad – top fresh greens with berries, feta and poppy seed dressing and you’ve got a great salad.

    The kids favorite is BLT – bacon, lettuce and tomato (with hard boiled eggs thrown in for good measure) top with ranch. Thow in some roasted chicken and you’ve got dinner.

  6. Becky says

    Not a huge fan of nuts in salad, but Wendy’s knows what they’re doing when it comes to salad! I’d love a try!

  7. Dixie Gualtieri says

    My favorite topping is a homemade ceasar dressing with romano cheese, garlic, parsley and olive oil. I also like to top salads with whatever is in season that is in my yard, avocado, mango, blackberry, naval oranges and a little bit of lime juice too. Sometimes I also sneak in a little bit of fresh ginger.

    The Berry Almond Chicken Salad was FABULOUS today. The Raspberry Vinegrette dressing made it as did the slivered almonds and the fresh fruit….(strawberries and blueberries)……..We ordered a large one and honestly, it was HUGGGGGE……lol…..I ate forever……but man was it good…..
