When it comes to fast food, Del Taco is working hard to stand above the crowd with their new “Eat Well with Del” campaign, remodeling some stores to showcase a “behind the scenes” look at how the kitchen operates, and making sure what you order is as fresh as it can possibly be.
Their latest fresh endeavor features three new salads under 600 calories – and that’s including the dressings they come with. The expansion and innovation of the salad options are yet another step in the brand’s continued commitment to provide guests with high quality, flavorful and UnFreshing Believable® menu items with Del Taco’s convenience and price.

“Our Handcrafted Ensaladas are made-to-order in our restaurants’ working kitchens using the freshest ingredients including our new fresh lettuce blend, sliced Hass avocado, handmade pico de gallo and fresh house-made tortilla chips,” said John Cappasola, executive vice president and chief brand officer, Del Taco. “We’re proud to introduce this new premium menu platform as part of our brand’s continued mission to serve UnFreshing Believable food that our guests will love.”
If you’re a frequent Del Taco visitor like I am (hello, taco Tuesday and Thursday), you may have already noticed the new menu items. If not here they are:
Del Taco’s new Handcrafted Ensaladas include:
- Chicken Bacon Avocado Salad: features freshly grilled marinated chicken, fresh sliced Hass avocado, crispy hand-chopped bacon, handmade pico de gallo salsa, chopped cilantro, and fresh house-made tortilla chips atop a mix of fresh crisp romaine and iceberg lettuce. Served with new cilantro pepita ranch dressing and only 590 calories.
- Mexican Chopped Chicken Salad: include a fresh blend of romaine and iceberg lettuce topped with fresh sliced Hass avocado, handmade pico de gallo salsa, chopped cilantro, fresh house-made tortilla chips, spicy jack cheese, seasoned black beans and freshly grilled marinated chicken. Served with salsa casera and only 510 calories.
- Signature Taco Salad: features seasoned beef, freshly sliced Hass avocado, handmade pico de gallo salsa, cheddar cheese freshly grated from 40-pound blocks, chopped cilantro, seasoned black beans, fresh house-made tortilla chips and real sour cream on a mix of fresh crisp romaine and iceberg lettuce.

My favorite out of the three was the Signature Taco Salad. I ordered it twice and got the Pepita Dressing which is now my new favorite way of ordering this salad but it’s basically a perfect blend of everything I love in a nice, new healthy option.
Fun fact: each Del Taco handcrafted ensalada is served in an eco-friendly container made from recycled beverage bottles. I love that Del Taco is not only environmentally conscious but also friendly to your waistline!.@DelTaco ensaladas are served in eco-friendly containers made from recycled beverage bottles.
