Thumbs Up: Così Chipotle Lime Chicken Salad
This new Southwestern-inspired salad is a winner. Citrus dressing, grilled chicken, corn, black beans, tomatoes, cukes, pineapple, and avocado spell serious flavor – and serious nutrition. For starters, it packs loads of protein and fiber. And for 376 calories and 15 grams of fat, you’ll get 9 grams of fiber, nearly twice your day’s vitamin A, and three quarters of your vitamin C to boot.

Thumb's Down: Così Cobb Salad
While most of Cosi’s salads are healthier than the competition’s, bacon and gorgonzola cheese bump up the calories, fat, and sodium significantly, making this one of their least nutritious salads. Order the Così Cobb Light to reduce the calories by almost 200.
