How bad is this compared to eating a frozen dinner? let me know what you ladies think - I know the sodium is a little high, but I was thinking some of the frozen dinners are about that high??? This includes reduced sugar dressing and all - even the fried noodles (which I wouldn't eat - of course)

I have no idea what this product is...from a restaurant or a grocery store??? Anyway, the sodium looks REALLY high to me, but water weight isn't permanent. I don't know if it would be worth all those circles for a salad to me, though ;)

I second that...REALLY HIGH sodium, Id stay away...

I'd stay away...the fat is also really high and the high fructose corn syrup is usally a no-no to me.

Thanks chickies - I guess I will forget about that one then - it seems so healthy till you look at the nutrition......

Mary - it is a salad from Panera Bread!!!

If it's a place where they make it could they mortify it like know salt added to the chicken. Or is it a prepackaged salad? Sounds good, but I agree why to high in the things we shouldn't have.
