Bring back the Wendy’s salad bar!

The news this week that the Wendy’s fast-food chain had introduced four new premium salads to its menu reminded me of those fabulous days when the Ohio-based burger restaurants used to offer a popular salad bar. If you were poor but hungry in the 1980s, that salad bar was a great way to fill up on a budget. A vegetarian friend of mine tells me that, at the time, Wendy’s offered her favorite meatless meal deal: cold salad and hot french fries. The fries cost extra, but what the hell.
