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!!
