Another Applebee's copycat recipe! They didn't post the serving size so I'm guessing here.

Made as instructed and used a French salad dressing from this site. Company and I totally enjoyed this salad and next time I might try using some shrimp. Thank you for posting. Made for Bargain Basement Tag Game 2011.
