How to get a chicken salad for $2 at McDonald's

See also

Saving money on fast food is something many of us try to do every time we dine out. However, we do not like having to be so cheap that we do not get to eat what we truly want.

One item that tends to be costly at many fast food restaurants when compared to combo meal choices is a chicken salad. On that note, here is how to get a chicken salad for two dollars plus tax at McDonald’s restaurants carrying select Dollar menu items.

What you need

There are two items you will need to build your chicken salad for two dollars. Those items are a McChicken sandwich and a Side salad.

What to do

Make sure the McDonald’s in which you choose has both a McChicken sandwich and a Side salad on its value menu. Then, order a plain (no dressing) McChicken sandwich and a Side salad with the dressing of your choice.

Build it

Remove the chicken patty from the McChicken sandwich and cut it into smaller pieces. Place the smaller pieces of chicken on to the Side salad and enjoy your newly self-tailored chicken salad.
