Zaxby’s Zensation Zalad and Sandwich Meal

While some fast-food restaurants engage in a friendly social media war about their chicken sandwiches, Zaxby’s introduced a new sandwich of their own that is unlike any other.

The Zensation sandwich is a spin-off of the seasonal, popular Zensation Zalad which was introduced in 2008.

Zaxby's Zensation

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.

The new Zensation sandwich is served as part of a meal which includes the star sandwich that is made with a Zaxby’s hand-breaded chicken filet topped with crunchy Asian slaw, crispy wonton strips, and creamy citrus vinaigrette – all served between two slices of their delicious Texas Toast.

The meal is served with crinkle-cut French fries, an eggroll, and a drink of choice.  (Zaxby’s serves Coca-Cola products – look for the Coca-Cola Freestyle® machines.)

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.
