Wendy’s will reportedly be rolling out a new Taco salad nationwide in a “few weeks,” according to a post on Reddit by a person claiming to work at the burger chain.
In the post, Reddit user RiverCitySaint describes the new salad as being “pretty basic,” with lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese, salsa, sour cream and tortilla chips, plus a side of chili for the topping.
We have a new salad rolling out the next few weeks. It’s called a taco salad. It’s similar to the older Baja salad we used to have. It’s pretty basic. Lettuce, diced tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese. Comes with chili on the salad for dine-in orders, or in a small chili cup for to-go orders. Also comes with packets of salsa and sour cream and of course the tortilla chips. The salsa is new. The tortilla chips look to be actual chips this time instead of strips like the previous one.
The description sounds similar to Wendy’s “Taco Supremo” salad, which has been on the chain’s menu in Canada for the past few years.
Wendy’s Taco Supremo salad features a bed of lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, tangy salsa, and shredded cheddar cheese, along with a topping of meaty chili, sour cream and crunchy taco chips.

The idea of a Wendy’s Taco Salad isn’t new. In fact, a taco salad was available at Wendy’s U.S. locations as far back as the early 1980s, and perhaps earlier. Check out the vintage commercial below featuring Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas pitching the new Taco Salad.
