The truth about McDonald's salads

Who goes to McDonald's for salad?

According to an article published in HuffPo fast food giant McDonald's has admitted that their salads make up only 2-3% of their sales. Hardly comes as a surprise.

With sales down across the board, the company has started to ax certain menu items, including two salads earlier this year, and instead focus on its Dollar Menu, which accounts for almost 15 percent of sales.

It hasn't been enough, as McDonald’s sales have yet to turn around.

According to Reuters, one of McDonald's biggest problems is just how large it has become, which makes it difficult to experiment with new menu items at a time when competitors have had great success doing just that.

The truth of it is though, would you ever order a salad at a fast food place?
