11. Burger King Tendercrisp Garden Salad
You have to love the adjectives they come up with, like “tendercrisp!” What exactly does that mean? If it’s the chicken they’re referring to, what that means is “Fried Whole Muscle Breast” as described in the ingredients list. I guess “tendercrisp” sounds more appealing than “fried whole muscle breast.” Add to that lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, and not one, not two, but three kinds of cheese–and you’ve got one-third of your calories for the day, over half of your fat allowance, and oopsie, you’re 17 percent over your sodium level.

10. Wendy’s Chicken BLT Salad with Homestyle Chicken Fillet
You could eat a regular BLT sandwich for around 400 calories, or you can eat this BLT salad for double the calories. Wendy’s boasts that “bacon, lettuce and tomato never had it so good”–that is, if bacon, lettuce, and tomato enjoy the company of chicken chunks, cheddar cheese, garlic croutons and honey-dijon dressing. It seems to kind of take away from the simplicity, and relative healthiness, that is the BLT.

9. Jack in the Box Crispy Chicken Club Salad
Seriously, why eat this salad? Lettuce with crispy chicken strips, cucumber slices, red onions, grape tomatoes, crumbled bacon pieces, shredded cheddar cheese, bacon ranch dressing and seasoned crouton–really?! You could eat a Jumbo Jack hamburger and small french fries for the same calorie count, decreased fat grams, and 727 less mg of sodium!
