Panera Bread’s Hidden Power Salad Menu

Did you know that Panera Bread sells power salads? We didn’t either but we had to try one. What is a power salad? The Power salad is your healthy alternative when you are counting calories, want something light, or We tried the Mediterranean Chicken Power Salad. It was chocked full of good things like romaine lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, hard-boiled egg, Applewood smoked bacon and loaded with lots of grilled Citrus & Pepper chicken. Instead of dressing they added a little bit of light olive oil and put a half of a lemon on the side so you could squeeze the juice on top. I had never really thought about using a lemon for dressing but it really worked. The whole salad with chicken came to only 360 little calories.

You won’t find Power Salads on the Panera Bread menu in their restaurants but if you want to order one, just ask them. The Power menu is available online. There are more than just salads on the Panera Bread Power menu. Breakfast egg bowl with steak, chicken hummus bowl, steak lettuce wrap and other tasty bowls.
