McDonald's salad has more calories than Big Mac


Though McDonald's may be on a health kick, some of its nutrient-enhanced meals are actually worse for you than junk food, according to CBC News.

McDonald's new Kale salad is the most outrageous offender, with more calories, fat, and sodium than a Double Big Mac burger.

Kale has received a good reputation as of late since it contains a significant amount of vitamins and can be easily added to a breakfast wrap or sandwich for an extra crunch.

On its website, McDonald's boasts that the "Keep Calm, Caesar On" chicken salad contains "real parmesan" cheese petals and a "nutrient-rich lettuce blend with baby kale." These ingredients may sound wonderfully healthy, but topped with creamy Asiago Caesar dressing on its crispy chicken version, the salad loses its appeal.

The salad contains more than 730 calories, 53 grams of fat, and 1,400 milligrams of salt, according to McDonald's nutritional information.
