Now you can make the ever-popular Applebee’s Asian Chicken Salad at home with this copycat recipe. Save money, but with the same delicious results!
We haven’t had a vacation in nine years, friends. Nine years! We were plagued with one hiccup after another. But we finally got away last week. And we couldn’t have chosen a better place to take the kids for the first time – Disneyland!
Is it expensive? Yes. Are the lines long? Yes. Is it hot? Yes. Is it worth it? YES YES YES.
You’re surrounded by smiling faces. And music. And bubbles. It truly is the happiest place on earth.
After eating our weight in corn dogs and ice cream cones for five days, though, I am ready to consume salads for the rest of my life.
I fell in love with this cheater Asian Chicken Salad from Applebee’s last year and actually made it all winter long. It’s not the same as a warm churro from Main Street, but it welcomed us home just fine.
