Review: Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich from Wendy’s

The latest from Wendy’s is really pushing freshness as its major theme. I’ve never really considered fresh mozzarella in a chicken sandwich, but this one looked promising.  It’s not often we even see this combination of ingredients in a sandwich.  I enjoy my mozzarella fresh or melted into goo so with that, the new Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich was an easy choice for my lunch today.Wendy’s describes their new Fresh Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich like this:

It all starts with our freshly grilled, herb-marinated grilled chicken which is then topped with three slices of fresh mozzarella cheese. We then pile on spring mix, house-made balsamic diced tomatoes, and drizzle on a creamy basil pesto – all served atop a soft, toasted garlic brioche bun.

Some of the thoughts going on in my head before trying this new sandwich included, balsamic-marinated diced tomatoes sound delicious, but will likely be a mess to have in a burger.  Also, is mozzarella too mild of a cheese to make a flavor impact?
