Zaxby’s has expanded its menu for summer with Zensible Zalads, all at fewer than 600 calories, the company said Wednesday.
The Athens, Ga.-based chicken-finger concept said the salads, starting at $8.99, include a choice of grilled or fried chicken and light vinaigrette dressing.
“When it comes to healthy options, consumers are accustomed to compromising between great taste and generous portions,” said Patrick Schwing, Zaxby's chief marketing officer, in a statement. “Our new Zensible Zalads are filling and full of flavor, all under 600 calories, including the dressing.”
The new salad options, in four versions, are available systemwide, the company said.
The Zensible House or Cobb Zalad offer a choice of chicken, vegetables, cheddar jack cheese and mixed greens. The Zensible Cobb Zalad adds a hard-boiled egg. All the salads are served with a light vinaigrette made with red wine vinegar, onion and garlic.
Zaxby’s in late May brought back its popular Fried Pickles, dusted with cornmeal batter and served with a ranch sauce of fresh buttermilk and herbs, as a permanent menu item.
Zaxby’s, founded in 1990, has more than 900 locations in 18 states.
