The favorite neighborhood grill and bar is getting new menu items for summer. Applebee’s savory salads will make you skip that burger and grab a fork. Eating your greens has never been tastier.

According to the restaurant brand, the new summer offerings include a Quesadilla Chicken Salad and a Buffalo Chicken Wedge Salad. While there are plenty of vegetables in the bowl, the salads are a hearty meal. At the same time, the flavors are light enough to be refreshing on a hot summer day.

The new Quesadilla Chicken Salad transforms that classic Mexican dish. Sitting on top of a bed of fresh greens, the grilled chicken is combined with black bean corn salsa. The highlight of the bowl is the house-made cilantro ranch dressing. Topped with pico de gallo and tortilla strips, it hits all the flavors and textures.

Plus, the salad is served with a cheese quesadilla. It is definitely a satisfying meal.

The Buffalo Chicken Wedge Salad transforms that classic wedge salad and everyone will want to take a bite. While the blue cheese dressing and traditional toppings are included, the crispy boneless chicken that has been tossed in classic Buffalo sauce brings a big, bold flavor. Even though the blue cheese tames the spiciness, the crunchy iceberg lettuce balances all the robust flavors.

Adding to the salad’s enjoyment, it is served with a signature breadstick. There are no judgments if you use the breadstick to ensure that no crumb or sauce is left behind?

What new cocktails go with the new Applebee’s savory salads?

Summer and cocktails are always a perfect pair and Applebee’s is offering two new cocktails that definitely have summer vibes. The Boom Berry Daiquiri combines strawberry and lime. That sweet and tart is perfectly refreshing on a warm day. Made with Captain Morgan, it is sip for a summertime adventure.

The Blue Bahama Mama might not be a trip to the islands, but this twist on a classic needs to be enjoyed before summer fades. Made with Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Malibu Coconut, blue curacao, the cocktail packs a big punch.

More importantly, the other flavors make it a drink to remember. Applebee’s said that it is a “proprietary blend of passion fruit, pineapple, cherry, and lime topped with lemon lime soda.” Of course, the gummy ring garnish is too cute to not capture in a picture.
