In contrast to other restaurants who appear to be abandoning healthier fare (because no one is ordering it), Hardee's has introduced their first salad, the Red Burrito Taco Salad.
Whether this salad qualifies as 'healthy' is up to you: 860 calories, 55 grams of fat, 60 grams carbs, 90 mg cholesterol, 1720 mg sodium, 38 grams protein. That's more calories and fat than two (2) of Hardee's Cheeseburgers.
In keeping with the marketing for their giant Thickburgers, Hardee's is calling it a "hearty entrée salad."
Selling for $3.99, the Red Burrito Taco Salad is a bowl-shaped tortilla shell filled with seasoned ground beef, Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, shredded lettuce, refried beans, sour cream, hot sauce and spicy pico de gallo salsa.
