A favorite salad

Let us now praise a bowl of lettuce, namely, the strawberry poppyseed and chicken salad at Panera (local locations in RC, La Verne, Chino Hills and Fontana). This is a seasonal item that popped up again in April and will be shelved again shortly. Strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, mandarin oranges and pecans, plus romaine, chicken and fat-free dressing. Not only is it healthy, it’s delicious, and amazingly it’s a mere 340 calories (or 220 without the chicken). I’ve been eating one every week. Don’t go, strawberry poppyseed and chicken salad!

    LOVE this salad!! Thanks for mentioning it — gotta get one before they shelve it. (I’ve only had two this season!) :) The half-size with a half sandwich is more than enough for lunch, but you can get a full size, too.

    [Sometimes I think briefly about getting the half-size version but I always want the whole thing, with no sandwich. -- DA]

    Well, you know David…I would really like “the big salad” if they offer it. If you bring me one, I’ll be sure to give you ALL the credit! Oh, but please hold the poppyseeds. They already cost me a trip overseas with J. Peterman and if he thinks I’m on the “horse” again, then it’s back to publishing and proofreading “WAR, What is it Good For?”

    [Let me repeat your order, Elaine: Hold the dressing, tear off the muffin bottoms. And I'll go to a restaurant where all the women have normal proportions so you won't have to file another EEOC complaint. -- DA]

    What’s the opposite of a strawberry poppyseed and chicken salad? A cranberry sesame seed and turkey sandwich? Try ordering that and maybe your world will change!
