Make sure you plan ahead for this one--chicken should marinate for a few hours if you want it to taste like the original. Todd Wilbur- TSR

Delicious! We really enjoyed this light, healthy chicken salad. The dressing was flavorful even though it was made without oil. I made a half recipe and it still made a lot. I marinated the chicken overnight and used prechopped roamaine and coleslaw mix. I haven't had the original salad at Applebee's, so I don't know how close this is, but we really loved it. Thank you for sharing...this is a keeper. *Made for Photo Tag*
