Southwest Salad A La Macdonald's
September 22, 2019
"My favorite salad of all time is the Southwest Salad from McDonald's—I adore it! Whenever I order it, I always ask for extra cilantro glaze, beans, and corn. In fact, my own recipe reflects my love for these ingredients. I typically add about 1/8 cup of canned corn and black beans, although they unfortunately don't allow me to include that on their menu. You can add Newman's Southwest Salad Dressing, I don't."
