Crowd-Pleasing Monterey Salad Tops List of Healthy, Hearty Offerings
Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) As summer approaches, health-conscious diners are on the lookout for appetizing, good-for-you options that fill you up and taste great, too. Just in time for National Salad Month, Dallas-based Cowboy Chicken is showcasing its hearty, mouthwatering salad options, including the return of its ever-popular Monterey salad, a summery sensation that’s both light and satisfying without sacrificing the flavor that diners expect from the wood-fired rotisserie chicken chain.
“Our guests kept asking us when we were going to bring back the Monterey, so we’ve added it to our regular menu on a permanent basis,” said Sean Kennedy, president and CEO of Cowboy Chicken. “We take great pride in the fact that our salads pack just as much taste and Texas-sized personality as anything on our menu. They’re delicious, filling and filled with the freshest healthy ingredients, made in-house with the same care and attention as our hormone-free, all-natural rotisserie chicken.”
The Monterey—a perfect blend of fresh avocado, tomato and cilantro, topped with Cowboy Chicken’s signature wood-fired rotisserie chicken, accented with Monterey Jack cheese, toasted cheese crisps and seasoned chicken cracklins, topped with zesty chili lime dressing and served over a bed of greens—anchors an appetizing lineup of farm-fresh salads. Other options include:
- Southwest chicken salad: Black beans, corn, red onions and shredded cheese add an enticing tang to chunks of rotisserie chicken, tossed with the restaurant’s housemade Texas ranch dressing.
- West Texas Caesar: Cowboy Chicken’s take on the classic Caesar salad features bites of rotisserie chicken and chopped romaine lettuce, tossed with toasted cheese crisps, crunchy tortilla strips and creamy Caesar dressing, topped off with homemade pico de gallo.
- Tangy tomato & cucumber salad: Juicy tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, red onions and cilantro, tossed with a vinaigrette.
- Garden salad: Fresh, flavorful greens topped with chopped vegetables.
Salad dressings include Texas ranch, house, balsamic vinaigrette and chili lime. Local dressing options may also be available, depending on location.
On-the-go diners can order their salads on the new Cowboy Chicken app, available through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, which allows guests to order ahead, pay with their phone at checkout and earn rewards.
Cowboy Chicken serves all-natural, hormone-free rotisserie chickens that are hand-seasoned in store, marinated for 24 hours and then slowly roasted for two hours over a real wood-burning fire. Other dishes include signature sour cream tomatillo chicken enchiladas, abundant scratch-made sides such as Twice Baked Potaters™, Baked Mac & Cheese, Ranchero Beans and seasonal cobblers baked in-house daily. Cowboy Chicken’s hearty and healthy dishes are available during lunch and dinner for dine-in, take out, catering and delivery.
