Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad


  • 3 tablespoons Honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon Sesame Oil



  1. Simply mix ingredients in a small bowl with wooden spoon.
  2. Refrigerate.


  • Sesame seed based sauce pairs well with spinach and fresh seasonal berries.
  • Add grated ginger and/or soy sauce for variation.
  • Sesame or seeds are a good source of Vitamin K and are low in cholesterol.



Benihana's Ginger Salad Dressing



  • 1/2 cup minced Onion
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Oil
  • 1/3 cup Rice Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Water
  • 2 tablespoons minced Fresh Ginger
  • 2 tablespoons minced Celery
  • 2 tablespoons Ketchup
  • 4 teaspoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced Garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper



  1. Add all ingredients to blender.
  2. Blend until ginger is pureed, about 30 seconds.


  • Get more flavor by opting for fresh squeezed lemon juice and fresh crushed black pepper.
  • Taste dressing after blending. Add additional seasonings as you see fit.
  • Japenese ginger dressing goes especially well with cabbage.




Additional Hints for Individual Salad Dressings





  • Don't be hesitant. Making your own salad dressing is as simple as mixing 3 parts oil, 1 part citrus juice/vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Add additional herbs and spices as desired.
  • Keep the fat! Important daily vitamins are fat soluable, so your body needs a slighlty fatty diet to incorporate these vitamins, such as Vitamins A, D, E and K.
  • Substitute yogurt for sour cream for a healthier dressing. In this case, use less vinegar.
  • Keep lettuce chilled in plastic bag in refrigerator, then toss with dressing in same bag before serving. This is easier to mix easier to clean up.
  • Chill serving plates before serving salad to keep greens  and veggies crispy.
  • Salad dressing is better served immediately after mixing.
