Sumo Salad Points

The new menu at Sumo Salad is turning into a total Seinfeld non-fat yogurt situation for me. To recap, they “revamped” their salad menu a few months ago and added/removed a bunch of items. Fair enough. The problem is that the few salads that they kept are now MUCH less healthy, but they haven’t advertised that fact at all. (Nor have they updated their listing in the new WW Points Guides, all of which still list the old Points values.) I sent in a complaint before but I haven’t heard anything back. At the very least, I’m going to post the current menu Points here in the hopes that future WW Googlers will know what they’re in for:

  • BBQ Prawn – 2.5 Points
  • Smoked Salmon and Goats Cheese – 4 Points
  • Tandoori Chicken – 4 Points
  • Pumpkin and Pinenut – 5.5 Points
  • Malaysian Beef – 5.5 Points
  • Moroccan Lamb – 5.5 Points
  • Lemon and Herb Chicken – 6.5 Points
  • Grilled Chicken Caesar – 9 Points

It’s the Pumpkin and Pinenut that still galls me. How it went up from 2.5 to 5.5 is baffling, unless they started using new super fatty feta or something.

  1. hmm
    I worked the points out with the calculator on http://wwcalculator.blogspot.com/ and they were different with the pumpkin and pinenut couing out at 4.5 and the lemon ang grilled chicken at 5

  2. Hmm. I used the calculator built into the WW eTools site. I’ll double-check my figures.

  3. Oh, wait, did you remember to add in the dressing, clare? The Sumo site lists all the dressings separately, so I had to work out each salad and then add the appropriate dressing.

  4. Gee…thanks for the info. I was wondering how many points I was eating.

    Did you calculate for the large (aka reg) or small (also known as small) portions?

  5. I went with whatever the size is on the nutritional info on their website. I’m fairly certain it’s the “large” size.

  6. You truly are a ‘web-goddess’
    Thankyou so much for this.

    I have forwarded the link to my other friends doing the WW thing.

    I was devastated to learn the painful truth about my beloved lemon and herb chicken salad…
