Salads Are Not Always Healthy!

They may both go by the name “Salad”, but are very different on the inside...Processed, not prepared is the name of the game here! The Southwest Salad is from one of the most popular fast-food chains, and while you may think you are getting a simple salad, you are most certainly getting more than some veggies & chicken!
