10 Chain Restaurant Salads That Have More Calories Than a Big Mac
MCDONALD'S 'KEEP CALM, CAESAR ON' ENTRéE SALAD BOWL
BURGER KING'S BACON CHEDDAR RANCH CHICKEN SALAD
This salad may be comprised of iceberg lettuce and tomatoes, but its caveat is found in its thick-cut smoked bacon pieces, croutons and dressing – which pack a ton of flavor, but unfortunately also add on calories and fat.
TGI FRIDAYS' PECAN-CRUSTED CHICKEN SALAD
CHEESECAKE FACTORY'S COBB SALAD
While avocados and eggs give the salad some healthier fat, the piles of blue cheese and bacon take it over-the-top.
WENDY'S APPLE PECAN CHICKEN SALAD
Wendy's offers a salad that isn't so far off from the Big Mac's caloric count, and includes healthy ingredients like roasted pecans, cranberries and apples.
P.F. CHANG'S LEMONGRASS CHICKEN SALAD
Nothing sounds lovelier than a medley of avocado, mango, cucumber and bean sprouts, but alas, this dish features wonton crisps, which might not help its nutritional value, but are pretty tasty regardless.
APPLEBEE'S GRILLED SHRIMP 'N SPINACH SALAD
Beyond the shrimp and spinach, this salad is loaded with a double dose of bacon in both the salad itself and its "hot bacon dressing."
KFC'S CRISPY CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD
KFC's salad's calories and fat skyrockets with the addition of its parmesan caesar dressing.
BENIHANA'S EMPEROR'S SALAD
A meal fit for nobility whose weakness is wasabi dressing – which comes in at around 690 calories. The dish itself is comprised of good-for-you vegetables and grapefruit.
HOOTERS' CHICKEN GARDEN SALAD
Bummed? The restaurant also sells a low-calorie fresh garden salad, which comes in at 320 calories and 20 grams of fat.
