Since it was only $5 for a foot-long for a limited time only, I thought I would give Subway another chance by trying its new Orchard Chicken Salad sandwich.
It’s like a Waldorf salad with cubed pieces of cooked chicken, cranberries, raisins, and small pieces of apple. I’m assuming it’s all tossed in a mayonnaise sauce but it didn’t seem too heavy or thick so that’s good.
I’m not a huge fan of cranberries so I must admit I picked them out of my sandwich. The raisins were golden and added a nice sweet flavor without overpowering. If there were apples in there they must have been green ones and soft, because I don’t remember any crunchiness.
I had my sandwich on wheat with spinach instead of lettuce and avocado at 60 cents extra per 6 inches. It’s not much on the caloric and fat factor either at 340 calories, 7 grams of fat and 6 grams of fiber for six inches.
I must say it was better than I expected and maybe the avocado helped but I just might try this sandwich again. Especially if it’s under $5 for the six inches or just $5 for the full foot.
