Didn't you can choose the salad? In Italy the mix salad there is since several years, if I remember right.

Yes, if I'm going to have a burger I'm going to get the whole meal deal that is bad for me. I would prefer to make my own salads.

The only thing I like at McDonald's is breakfast and milkshakes. I am not a burger lover, and I will occasionally eat one or two of my husband's fries. I don't even order the breakfast value meals because I don't want the hash browns. Potatoes are not high on my list.

McDonald's burgers are not known to be really healthy, with or without fries.

No one I know goes to McDonalds to eat healthful meals. Salads on the menu are there to appease the food police.

It's just an expression. I'm referring to news reports that McDonald's food is unhealthy. To improve their image, McD adds fruits, milk and salads to their menu.

I understood it. I mean that from here don't seem you have some terrible "food police" that picks on junk food. My boyfriend went to NY some year ago and, from what he told me, McDonald is only a little part of a bigger problem.
But my "here" is quite far from "there", so I don't know.
