Some of the top salads for lowest calories and highest nutritional quality include Taco Bell Chicken Ranch Taco Salad (Fresco Style) and their Chipotle Steak Salad (Fresco Style), McDonald’s Premium Southwest Salad with Grilled Chicken, Chick-fil-A Chargrilled Chicken Garden Salad and the Chargrilled Chicken and Fruit Salad.

Wendy’s Mandarin Chicken Salad, Jack in the Box Grilled Chicken Salad, KFC Grilled Chicken BLT Salad, Carl’s Jr. Cranberry Apple Walnut Grilled Chicken Salad and Carl’s Jr. Original Grilled Chicken Salad are also good for fast food diets.
