The Most Nutritious Item On Costco's Food Court Menu Is Still A Great Deal
By Stacie Adams
Costco isn't just a wholesale grocery club — it's an institution for those with memberships. A trip to Costco wouldn't be complete without a trip to the food court, which features one item that is as affordable as it is nutritious among the fried snacks and other treats.
Costco's Caesar salad contains 40 grams of fat, 650 calories, and 40 grams of protein, thanks to the chicken portions. The dressing increases the fat and sodium content, but you can ask for it on the side and ditch the croutons to cut down on additional calories.
In addition to being good for your health, the Costco chicken Caesar salad is also easy on your wallet. It costs $3.99, which is unbeatable for its nutritional value and the great taste the Costco food court is known for.
