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.
