Here is McDonalds description of their Premium Southwest Salad.
Mix it up with a toss of premium greens made fresh daily and three cups of veggies like fire-roasted corn, savory black beans, oven roasted tomatoes and poblano peppers gets sprinkled with cheddar and jack cheeses, chili-lime tortilla strips and a fresh-sliced lime wedge. Served with Newman’s Own Southwest Dressing.
We love the Southwest salad. It’s a quick and easy way to get some healthy food in your stomach. It has all the leafy greens to keep you health. That’s nice.
Healthy right!? Healthier compared to the rest of the fast food products.
I was poking around the website the other day and saw that the ingredients of the salad were pretty interesting.
The salad has all the Cilantro Lime Glaze in it with the following ingredients.
