I love this crunchy, citrusy salad. Once I even made my husband drive the hour to the nearest Applebee's restaurant just so I could eat it! That's when I decided to come up with my own version that's a great stand-in for the original. I'm happy and my husband is, too! Find more of my recipes at my blog, —Mandy Bird, Holbrook, Idaho
