Applebee's Oriental Salad

I found this recipe on pinterest. I am not a big fan of Applebee's but we do go there from time to time for family dinners and the only thing I like is the Oriental Salad. When I saw this recipe on pinterest I had to check it out because I love the dressing so very much. I have to thank Mommy, I'm hungry's blog because I made this salad for me and my mom and we both devoured it. I did change the salad a bit but the dressing is the same except I added salt and pepper. Try it and let me know what you think.

Ingredients for Dressing
3 tablespoons Honey
1 1/2 tablespoons Rice Vinegar
1/4 cup mayo
1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
1/8 teaspoon Sesame Oil

Add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until well blended. Let sit until chicken and salad is prepared. This made enough for two salads but I would double it if you plan to make more.

Ingredients for Chicken
1 lb chicken tenderloin
2 eggs well blended
1 cup of flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
1 cup of canola oil

Heat Canola oil until very hot. Mix flour with salt and pepper. Salt and pepper each piece of chicken. Dip each tenderloin in egg and then dredge in flour. Place it in the oil and fry until brown. Then turn and brown the other side. Cool and drain on a paper towel. Once the all chicken is cooked prepare each salad.

Ingredients for Salad
1/2 of head of lettuce chopped
1/2 bag of prepared coleslaw
2 scallions chopped
1 cup of chowmein noodles
1 cup slivered almonds toasted

Prepare each plate with salad ingredients and then add at least one or two cut up fried tenderloins. Drizzle dressing over the top.
