Chic fil-A is launching a kale-based side as an alternative to fries, marking the first time that a fast-food chain has offered kale nationwide, executives told Business Insider.
The new so-called superfood side features hand-chopped kale and broccolini tossed in a maple vinaigrette dressing and topped with dried sour cherries and roasted nuts, including walnuts, almonds, and pecans.
The dish is just 140 calories for a 5-ounce portion and contains 7 grams of fat. By comparison, a medium order of the chain’s waffle fries are 400 calories with 21 grams of fat.
To make room for the new side, Chick-fil-A has dropped cole slaw from the menu, which has been served by the chain since it opened in 1946.I Wanna Go to Chick fil-a Video Goes Viral
