The coldly anticipated McDonald's kale salads have finally arrived in the forgiving test markets of Canada. So if you wanted to start a diet but you're deeply hypnotized by the stench emitting from those two golden arches, you could try the delightfully named "Keep Calm, Caesar On" salad or the "I'm Greek-ing Out" option. Just be careful not to add dressing if your diet doesn't allow a Caesar salad to have "more calories, fat, and sodium than a Double Big Mac." Because that's exactly what you're digging your plastic fork into according to Canada's CBC News.
...once you plop the accompanying Asiago Caesar dressing on the 'crispy chicken' version, the salad's nutritional profile doesn't look so good. According to McDonald's own numbers, the salad tops up at 730 calories, 53 grams of fat, and 1,400 milligrams of salt.
Combined with the Greek Feta Dressing, the 'I'm Greek-ing Out' salad with grilled chicken amounts to: 420 calories, 26 grams of fat, and 1,080 milligrams of sodium.
Now, the Double Big Mac is a monstrosity reserved only for Canadians, presumably because they hunt moose and are used to that sort of thing. But even the Double Big Mac has only 680 calories. Meaning while the "Greek-ing Out" salad is slightly less caloric intake than that beast; and if you opt for the Caesar, you may as well just indulge in a cheesy beef patty instead—as far as your caloric balance is concerned.
Or you could always just take your chances on the McDonald's secret menu instead.
