American quick-service hamburger company Wendy’s has added two new items to its menu, the Southwest avocado chicken salad and sandwich.

Available for a limited time at all locations, the salad is made with lettuce, Applewood smoked bacon, grilled chicken, tomatoes and avocados seasoned with salt and lime.

The sandwich features a bun with creamy avocado, Applewood smoked bacon, pepper jack cheese and grilled chicken breast.

The salad is offered with the company’s Southwest ranch dressing by Marzetti and the sandwich is offered with Southwest ranch sauce by Marzetti.

“Our commitment to freshness and quality coupled with the ability to deliver bold flavours is what sets us apart.”

Wendy’s chief concept and marketing officer Kurt Kane said: “Fresh is just what we do at Wendy’s, and that’s exactly why we hand-chop our lettuce and only serve warm, freshly grilled chicken on our salads.

“Our commitment to freshness and quality coupled with the ability to deliver bold flavours is what sets us apart.

“So, whether you order Wendy’s fresh Southwest avocado chicken salad or bite into Wendy’s bold Southwest avocado chicken sandwich, you’ll taste what makes Wendy’s deliciously different.”

The full-size chicken salad portion is available for $6.69 and a half-size for $4.69, whereas the sandwich is priced at $5.79.
