If you're tired of the usual lunch choices, you might want to give Lean Cuisine Salad Additions a try. This is one of several current BzzAgent campaigns that I've joined recently. As a BzzAgent, I received a coupon for a free Salad Additions and was super excited to try it out.
Unfortunately, my local Kroger didn't stock this product until the past week. And my local Wal-Mart Supercenter only carried the Asian-Style Chicken variety, which contains sesame. And sesame = terrible hives for me, so that one was a no-go. Luckily, my second home is Kroger, so I happened to find all four offerings last week in a new freezer end-cap display.

The assembly is not quite as easy as picking up a salad from a restaurant or deli, but far simpler than making your own salad from scratch. You simply thaw the dressing packet while you microwave the chicken & veggie pouch. Put your lettuce (this you buy separately) in your bowl or plate, and add everything else on top.
While I can't say the final product knocked my socks off, it definitely wasn't bad. I added it to a portion of a mixed garden green bagged salad. Loved the color and textures of the veggies and onion straws, but overall, I felt the chicken to be lackluster. It tasted a bit bland and several pieces were spongy. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't buy it again without a coupon when I could buy an entire McDonald's salad for not that much more (and they're tastier--sorry Lean Cuisine).
