Summary:  A beautiful salad to eat on a beautiful day. Perfect combination of ingredients had me feeling #blessed by the Lord. Highly recommended, but be sure you’re able to exercise self-control and not order too many.

Meal Context

I visited Wendy’s on a Sunday morning. The sun was bright in the sky and its rays touched the city streets with a special warmth. It was the type of day where a smile comes easy and you know everything will be alright.

I used to order the taco salad at Wendy’s when my pops would take me after soccer practice. He’d say I don’t know how you eat that slop, but he never had very good taste in food anyway.

I’m not sure what it was, but a voice came to me after Sunday prayer service and said Go! Go to Wendy’s and enjoyeth what Great Gifts the Lord has delivered to-eth us from on High!

That’s when I just new that I had to order the taco salad.

I strolled in with a smile on my face, placed my order, filled my cup with Cherry Coke, and waited for the Lord’s Goodness to arrive

When my salad came out. Well sheesh… Just one sniff and I knew it was going to be one of the best dang salads I ever did have in my life.

The ground beef was nice and chewy with the perfect amount of famous chili. The lettuce was crisp and light. And the dollop of sour cream was just the perfect amount of sour! Combined with Wendy’s famous tortilla chips, this thing was tasty and then some.

It was like I was seven all over again. Pure bliss. Praise to the Good Lord.

Now let me tell you. This thing is a beauty and a half. One of the prettiest fast food salad I ever have seen.

I demanded to see the chef. After the cashier called back, he sheepishly appeared at the counter. My good sir, I exclaimed, I must shake your hand.

I took his hand and felt a jolt through me. This was no ordinary man. This was not human. This was an angel of the Lord. I got on my knees and kissed his hand and wept. He thanked me for enjoying his salad.

Wow! Wendy’s really has live angels making these thing. Just wow.

Stomach Effects

So this is the one area of complaint.

I did not agree with the Good Lord’s plan on this one.

The salad was the best I’d ever had. So good, in fact, that I had to order another. And another. It was a Holy Salad–what would you do?

The chili ground beef and cheddar cheese started to take its toll around salad #4, but I pressed on.

By the time I got to salad #7 I had really slowed down.

By salad #8 I had a terrible tummy ache.

I won’t go into details, but I sure did come close to cursing My Lord!

Pros & Cons



Best salad ever.


Chewy ground beef.


Not sure if it’s like this everywhere, but an actual angel made my salad!



So good that I ate too many salads which gave me a very bad tummy ache.
