This is my go-to meal when on the run or when I feel like "fast food". The salad is delicious, and I top mine with Ranch instead of the southwest dressing. Although the calories are a little more (344 total with the Ranch), it's still a healthier option than most items on the menu.

I love this salad as a quick lunch during my half hour lunch at work! I don't use any dressing because it's tasty as is!

Having two small children we visit The Golden Arches quite frequently. I love that my kids would rather eat the apple slices than their french fries. The southwest grilled chicken salad is a great choice for me. It fills me up! If I'm feeling really lucky that day, I'll order the salad without the chicken and get the Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Wrap with it!

I love this salad. Great mix of ingredients, and the light sauce on the meat and the included (usually) lime make the dressing unecessary.

This nutrition info is for the salad only. It does not include the dressing packet. I don't use any of the dressing packet because they already include some dressing in the salad. You really don't need to add anything. Do give the lime wedge a squeeze over the top. It's so good and fills me up.

I prefer this over most of their burgers even. I would say I get it 90 percent of the time when I stop at McDonalds. I would even put it up against most salads you get at a sit-down restaurant and say you come out with a tastier salad from McDonald's drive thru

I make two salads out of the one portion, by cutting the original in half, and putting the two portions on top of two big bowls filled with romaine. It still tastes just as good, has fewer calories per portion, and is twice as good at half the price per salad. Great buy..!

DELICIOUS! By squeezing the fresh lime wedge over top, I find I only need a little bit of the dressing packet.

I love, love, love this salad. There's a McDonalds right outside of my gym. This is a great grab-n-go for dinner after my workout and there's no guilt involved.

Love this salad - just had one today. LOL!!! I use only 1/2 the Southwest dressing - still enjoy the taste with only 1/2 the calories!!!

I love this salad! I feel so much better getting this that the #10 (Ten Pc Chicken Nugget meal) that I used to always get. Much, much healthier option!

I really like this salad with the southwest dressing.

Such a good salad! I highly recommend it.

This is also my favorite go-to item for a fast meal. I do get the Southwest dressing despite the extra calories & fat, but I make sure I have the extra calories just for it.

This is my go-to salda at McDonald's too. For a fast food salad the tast is incredible. Its spicy but not too spicy and I love the black beans and corn. The lettuce is similar to field greens and makes the salad even more visualy appealing. It does have a lot of sodium but that's not really an issue for me.
