I'm putting together this salad later today but just made the dressing. All I can say is WOW! So great! Tastes EXACTLY like the dressing they use on it at Applebee's.
The dressing is spot on the salad from Applebee's!
The dressing was exactly what I was looking for. This is one of our favorite salads to order and now I can make it at home.
