Applebee's Unveils New Grilled Seasonal Salads - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
You know how I am about "National Days".  I consistently post about them.  Well, folks, today is National Watermelon Day!  I love the sweet, juicy flavor of watermelon and eat it often, especially in the summertime.  

If you want a watermelon fix, might I suggest Applebee's.  One of their new menu offerings is the Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad.  It's not a flavor pairing that I'd ever imagine going well together, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it balances out well.  


Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad

My husband and I recently spent an evening at our local Applebee's, and we gorged on all sorts of great food.  We both shared and delved in to the Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad.  The sweetness of the watermelon with the spiciness of the shrimp made it an amazing dish.
Jason and I also tried the new Crispy Chicken ‘N Spicy Cornbread Salad.  I didn't get a picture of our dish because Jason tore into it, and the salad disappeared quicker than a toupee in a hurricane.  (Apparently he hasn't learned up on blogger rules!)  Anyhow, this salad was just as yummy and filling as the first one.     

Chicken Quesadilla

Starting at $8.99 at participating restaurants, the new Wood Fired Grill Salad lineup includes:

·Crispy Chicken ‘N Spicy Cornbread Salad: Mixed greens, made-in-house jalapeno cornbread croutons, grape tomatoes, shredded cheddar, applewood-smoked bacon and buttermilk dressing.

· 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.

·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.

·Spicy Blackened Grilled Chicken, Avocado and Grapefruit Salad: Mixed greens, pickled in-house red onions, cilantro leaves and house-made champagne vinaigrette.


Because that's how we roll, Jason and I went all out and ordered other food beyond the salads.  We had an appetizer of Chicken Quesadilla and I had a fancy foo-foo margarita.  Jason and I finished off our meal with the Triple Hog Dare Ya sandwich, piled with ham, pork, bacon, crispy onions, and sauce.  And it came with an order of fries.  

Jason and I committed fabulous gluttony.  Everything we ate at Applebee's was appetizing, and the service was prompt.  The new grilled seasonal salads are a great addition to the already mouthwatering menu options.

Triple Hog Dare Ya sandwich with fries

Win It!

One person will win a $50 Applebee's gift card.
