Applebee’s New Menu Items: Wood Fired Grill Salads + Sweepstakes
*Disclosure: I did receive an Applebee’s gift card to facilitate my review. These opinions are my own and were in no way influenced by another person.
I recently partnered with Applebee’s to share with you their new Wood Fired Grill Salads. I’m a huge salad fan, so I was pretty excited to check these out. My family and I enjoyed an evening out at our local Applebee’s and I have to say, these are pretty impressive and I’m thrilled that they now have these options on their menu.
National Watermelon Day
One of their new salads is the Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad. This salad is a fresh combination of grill-seared watermelon prepared with a house-made mint-Greek yogurt dressing. We sampled this salad on a recent visit and I have to say, it’s a pretty delicious combination!

About the new Salads:
Starting at $8.99 at participating restaurants, the new Wood Fired Grill Salad lineup includes:
- 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.
What a great addition to the Applebee’s menu! As I mentioned, I love salads and sometimes it’s hard to find a unique salad, and these definitely are unique. We tried the Southwestern Steak Salad and I really love the combination of steak and salad. It’s a very hearty meal, even though it’s salad. We also tried the Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad and it was really good, the shrimp was wonderful. These are great summer options and the portion sizes are really nice.
