      I don't know what Wendy's salad tastes like but this one is fantastic. I did make a few changes. Used 1/4c honey - no corn syrup, cider rather than white vinegar, olive oil, and water chestnuts for crunch since I didn't have rice noodles on hand. Delicious, princess buttercup.

      So sad that Wendy's has stopped carrying this salad - I absolutely love it. Tried this copycat recipe and am happy as a clam with it ! I don't know who figured out the dressing ingredients, but my hat is off to them - great job !

      This was great! Picked apart a whole roasted chicken, didn't know what rice noodles were so didn't add them. I did add mushrooms and bean sprouts. Thanks for a quick and easy dinner.
