Disclosure: I received a gift card to let our family experience these new Wood Fired Salads at Applebees. All opinions are my own.
We live in an awesome location. Our backyard is made of woods and we have a zipline there along with a swing set, tire swing and a firepit. We are surrounded by pine trees and it feels very secluded. But we are walking distance to many cool places including our local Applebee’s. Tonight we got a chance to visit and try their new Wood Fired Salads.
They have four wood fired salads.
- NEW Southwestern Steak Salad: Hand-Cut Wood Fired USDA Choice Top Sirloin Steak paired with chimichurri, pico de gallo, corn and black bean salsa, cheddar, crispy tortilla strips and a creamy house-made cilantro ranch dressing.
- NEW Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad: Mixed greens, cucumbers, feta, almonds and house-made creamy mint-Greek yogurt dressing. Also available with Spicy Blackened Chicken.
- NEW Spicy Blackened Grilled Chicken, Avocado and Grapefruit Salad: Mixed greens, pickled in-house red onions, cilantro leaves and house-made champagne vinaigrette.
- NEW Crispy Chicken ‘N Spicy Cornbread Salad: Mixed greens, made-in-house jalapeno cornbread croutons, grape tomatoes, shredded cheddar, applewood-smoked bacon and buttermilk dressing.
They all sound amazing! But we went with the Southwestern Steak Salad and it was AMAZING!
The dressing was the best part. It tasted so fresh and was a bit spicy, but not hot. Everything was so fresh and it was very filling. Of course, we ALL enjoyed our meals and even got a little dessert to share too.
And Jack wanted to let you all know a little secret….
