Chili’s is one of my favorite chain restaurants, and 99% of the time I eat there, I get something that includes their honey mustard dressing dipping sauce stuff. Seriously, I request it even if the recipe doesn’t come with it. It’s goo on salads, on chicken, on burgers, on just about anything.
So when I saw this recipe for making it at home, I knew I had to test it out. Chili’s is great, but their selections aren’t exactly healthy. If I can make the dipping sauce at home but better control the calories and fat in whatever I’m putting it on, all the better.
Not that this dipping sauce is necessarily low-calorie. But it’s a lot better to put it on a baked chicken breast than processed, fried chicken fingers like you get at the restaurant!
So, without further ado, here’s the copycat recipe (with a few little tweaks of my own).
Did you ever make a new recipe for your husband and he looked at it and said, “What the heck is that?” That’s what happened when I made this Strawberry Spinach Salad the first time. So I replied, ” Shut up and eat it.”
My husband put some salad on his plate and soon he was getting more. Now he requests this salad!
The first time I had this salad was at a church Mother’s Day banquet. I had my doubts, but I tried the salad and it was good! The salad recipe is in the church cookbook. The salad is also very easy to make. It’s the perfect recipe for those lazy summer days when you want something light for lunch and don’t feel like heating up your whole house by turning on the oven or stove.
Plus, we grow our own strawberries, so when the garden is pumping them out, this is a great non-dessert recipe to put them to good use!
