Chick-fil-A fans are in for a surprise. The popular fast-food chain has decided to eliminate the side salad from its menu effective Monday, April 3.

At 470 calories per serving, the salad is composed of a bed of mixed greens, topped with a blend of shredded Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses and grape tomatoes. Prepared fresh daily, it’s served with charred tomato, crispy red bell peppers, and choice of dressing.

Customers who order the side salad between now and April 3 should receive a flyer with their order letting them know of the forthcoming change.

“Serving guests is at the heart of all we do at Chick-fil-A,” a formal release by Chick-fil-A Inc. stated. “In order for our Restaurant Team Members to continue to deliver quality food and signature hospitality, at times we have to make difficult decisions to help simplify our menu. Starting April 3, the Chick-fil-A Side Salad will no longer be offered in our U.S. restaurants.”

Chick-fil-A Inc. also said it’s increasing the size of the kale crunch side on its menu to a large, which may be a healthy alternative for some guests interested in adding fresh greens to their meal. The kale crunch side option has 120 calories and is composed of a blend of curly kale and green cabbage tossed with an apple cider and Dijon mustard vinaigrette, topped off with salted, crunchy roasted almonds.
