It's "the perfect combination of contrasting flavors and textures you would expect to find in an upscale bistro," Wendy's says. But what makes the Ciabatta Bacon Cheeseburger "Mediterranean-inspired"? Here's how Wendy's describes it:
"No typical marinara and mozzarella here – the Ciabatta Bacon Cheeseburger smells and tastes like it was crafted under the Italian sun. It features Mediterranean-inspired ingredients, like tangy, creamy rosemary garlic aioli and sweet, mildly tart, roasted chopped tomatoes. The tomatoes and spring mix made from nine different greens give a burst of cool freshness against melty, naturally aged Asiago cheese and a hot quarter-pound patty of fresh, never-frozen North American beef*. Applewood Smoked bacon gives the cheeseburger extra crunch, and toasted authentic ciabatta bread makes the perfect bun for these complex, rich flavors."It's a limited-time burger; no word on how long it might stay on the Wendy's menu. The suggested price is $4.79, but that could vary a bit from market to market.
