Applebee's Honey Mustard Dressing

If I go to Applebee's, I usually am known to order their Oriental Chicken Salad. It's one of my favorites... at least up until recently, that is.  The last few times I have had it, the salad consisted mainly of cabbage and chow mein noddles.  Now, don't get me wrong, I love cabbage and I love chow mein noddles, but when I order a salad, I expect it to be full of lettuce first and foremost.  Now that is just me, some people may not feel the same... and that's okay, I'm just expressing my opinion here :)

Despite the lack of lettuce, I still really like the salad and of course, one of my favorite things about it, is the honey mustard dressing.  Now this replica is not exact, but I think it's a pretty close second.  And what's great, you can use the dressing on any type of salad you want.  Heck, you can even use it as the dressing for your next chicken salad sandwich... now that would be really good!!!

P.s.. I have some photos I'll be sharing this week of the wedding.. probably either Wednesday or Thursday, depending on how fast I can get the post ready... so don't forget to stop back by later this week to get a peak at our perfect day!!

I LOVE honey mustard, and this looks easy enough. :-)

Applebee's makes great salads - Jeremy always fusses at me when I order them instead of getting a burger or something else, but they're really good! I had the shrimp-avocado one last time, which has become my new favorite. This dressing is perfect - after too many sweets of late, we're looking to oomph-up the vegetable intake, and this will certainly help ... :)

Funny, you and Alexis like the same salads. You'd probably also love the house salad at Rafferty's, another of her favorites. They are the ones that inspired my bacon honey mustard dressing.
