Arby's Market Fresh Asian Sesame SaladI drove through and picked up this salad and was in for a very pleasant surprise when I reached my lunch meeting. The greens include spring-mix, iceberg and romaine lettuce, which were green and fresh. It was topped with diced grilled chicken, mandarin orange slices, red cabbage and shredded carrots. Sliced almonds came on the side, as did the Asian Sesame Dressing. There was just enough dressing to lend it a wonderful flavor. I truly enjoyed this salad.

Other Arby's Salads: The Martha's Vineyard salad with apples, chicken, cranberries, cheese is not a bad choice but it has 280 calories (before dressing), 10 grams fat, 22 grams carbs (18 net). The raspberry vinaigrette dressing has a similar calorie/fat/carb grams as the Asian sesame dressing - 172/12/16.
The Santa Fe Salad packs a wallop of calories - 520, 29 grams fat, 40 grams carbs, with the dressing having twice the calories and fat as the other dressings. This is not the best choice unless you enjoy it without the dressing, and even then you will be getting more calories, fat, and carbs than the other salads WITH dressing.
