McDonald’s salads are sneaking back onto menus

Are McDonald’s salads back? Could be.

I’ve written a lot about all the low-salt, low-fat and low-sugar food items that have disappeared during the pandemic as processors and restaurants concentrate only on their highest volume offerings. McDonald’s salads were an early pandemic food casualty.

But I think they’re coming back. I recently stopped at a local McDonald’s for some diet Coke, really the only thing I’ve ordered there since they dropped salads and yogurt.

My order came with a flyer listing a ‘buy a salad, get one free’ offer at some local McDonald’s (presumably all owned by the same franchisee).

I checked my app for my local McDonald’s and see one salad, the Ceasar chicken, again available for order. The Southwest Salad is listed as not available.

Let’s be clear, there are many, many other lunch choices that would be healthier than a McDonald’s salad which is still loaded with salt. Healthier lunch choices would be things you make yourself so you can control the salt, fat and sugar content.

But if you have to buy lunch at McDonald’s, the salad is the least unhealthy choice. Don’t use the dressings, there add even more salt. Carry your own in small plastic bottles like I used to do pre-pandemic.

  1. Where are you located? I’m in PA. I really hope they bring back salads here. And the yogurt parfait. They removed a lot of good things off the menu! They could have removed some of the burger choices instead of some of the other things they did away with.

  2. Haven’t eaten there since they did away with the salads. Loved the grilled chicken salads. I used to call them quite a bit in Staunton, Va. just to see if they got back the salads. Answer was always NO. Haven’t checked lately and haven’t eaten there since dropped the salads. Can’t wait til they get them back. If not— bye bye McDonalds.
