One of my favorites---especially from Applebee's--close anyway!!! I like to use bbq'ed chicken in this and then use the really good salad greens--not iceberg lettuce!! - 1/31/09

I went to Applebee's and finally saw the salad you were talking about-lol. The base ingredients are the same but it tastes totally different b/c of the dressing they use. Still good though.
