Eat More Kale (and Broccolini) - Chick-fil-A's Superfood Side salad is dressed to impress!
Written by Karen Logan   

Have you tried the new superfood side at Chick-fil-A? I did, and I'm happy to say it's now my new favorite fast food menu side item. No, I’m not kidding. You see, for the past 4 years I've been a Chick-fil-A black card holder - meaning I can flash my VIP card at any local CFA and get an entrée or entire meal for absolutely free, every day that Chick-fil-A is open, for the entire year. So indeed, I've had my share of chicken sandwiches, bowls of tortilla soup, nuggets, and waffle fries. Not that I plan to stop ordering these items anytime soon. And I should note, that I often use my card to get a free Grilled Market salad, and those are super healthy and quite delicious as well. But the new superfood salad is a welcome addition to my palate. It’s light and cool, fresh, flavored just right, and it actually leaves me wanting more. The greens are tender and bite-sized, topped with dried sour cherries and roasted nuts (almonds, pecans, and walnuts) and paired with a delicious maple vinaigrette that really kicks up the salad’s flavor.

Just for the record, I can count on one hand how many times I purchased kale from the supermarket in 2015. I don’t think I purchased broccolini at all. So these are not my favorite veggies.  However, the superfood side salad is quite impressive, and it’s one I can enjoy eating every day and not feel guilty about. When you eat Chick-fil-A as much as I do (and to be truthful, I don't actually go every day, but close to it), you have to start making the healthiest choices possible, for the sake of a decent waistline if nothing else. The superfood side salad is delicious, and is something my girls will start eating too, to replace their side of fries. I am so pleased!
