  • YUM! Whenever I go to Wendy's now, I usually get either the Taco Salad or their Mandarin Chicken Salad...(doctor's orders, gotta give up the burgers and fries)... ;)

    I LOVE mandarins in salad, they go so well...mmmm...bacon and mandarins...perfect ;)

    I have also started making salads at home...not just the usual plain old lettuce and tomato...I'm using lean chicken, chick peas etc for I often chuck in some pear or apple for a fruity flavour. YUM.

    Will definitely be trying this recipe next.

    Good looking salad... What a healthy meal - I'd just throw a whopping big steak on the side.. oh and maybe a big ole stuffed baked potato too..... With a nice glass of Central Otago pinot gris or three....... Health all round.
