If you are looking for an asian flavor explosion, then the Zaxby’s Zensation Zalad is a perfect choice! This delicious salad includes crisp ingredients like cabbage, carrots, and crunchy wonton strips. The dressing is a fusion of asian flavors, making it zesty and flavorful.
The Zensation sandwich is a spin-off of the seasonal, popular Zensation Zalad which was introduced in 2008.
The Zensation Zalad is made with made-to-order hand-breaded chicken fingers that are cut into pieces and placed atop a bead of chopped mixed greens, red cabbage, carrots and wonton strips.
The salad is further topped with Zaxby’s Asian slaw and drizzled with honey sesame teriyaki.
The salad is served with a vegetable eggroll and a packet of citrus vinaigrette dressing. Personally, I find that the honey sesame teriyaki drizzle is enough and that the salad does not need the additional salad dressing.

I love the zensations salad but I only use the Citrus dressing no honey drizzle.
I Love the Zaxby’s Zensation Salad😋. I need to know how to make that citrus dressing though. They don’t have Zaxby’s where I live (Miami), so I have to grab while I can when I’m Georgia.
I don’t care what anyone says, this is my favorite Zaxby’s sandwich. I wish they had it on the menu full time. And I personally really like the egg roll as well. The only complaint about Zaxby’s that I have is I wish they still seasoned their fries as much as they used to without asking them too.

Sandwich was good but its a lot of bread vs just ordering a chicken fingers meal. I don’t feel like you get as much chicken as the four fingers meal. Also if you are not a fan of their cole-slaw you might want to steer clear as a lot is included in the sandwich. Also the egg roll is just fried up slaw in an egg roll wrapper no extra protein there.
