LOOKING for: Salad Dressing Recipe

I LOVE the grilled shrimp spinach salad at Applebees. Does anyone have the/similar dressing recipe that would go with this salad so I could make it at home? I tried googling it but didn't get THE recipe, which is apparently a best-kept secret.

No, but did you see the recipe for the dressing below? If not it, it sure sounds good.

Here is a link that might be useful: Salad

Perhaps. I'll try it out and see if it's the right one. It's really hard to tell just from the recipe alone.

Post back how it turned out. Never tasted the original myself.

RE: LOOKING for: Salad Dressing Recipe

i FOUND THIS RECIPE at ALLRECIPES. It sounds like A LOT OF SUGar, but everyone gAVE IT Rave reviews. oNE OF THE REVIEWERS Said the following: "I work at an applebee's and we have a hot bacon dressing to die for and after searching for anything remotely close and coming up with nothing, I came across this recipe. I just made it and it's quick and easy and exactly what I was looking for."

"This warm dressing immerses crunchy bacon bits in a sweet, thickened vinaigrette for an old-time taste treat!"

8 slices bacon
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup white vinegar
1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch and salt, and slowly pour in water and vinegar, whisking constantly.
3. In a medium skillet, add the crumbled bacon and pour the vinegar mixture over it. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens.

(P.S. Sorry ABOUT THE TYPING. i Have no control over the cAPS LOCK ON MY KEYBOard since I spilled coffee on it!)

another review

Here is ANOTHER REVIEW OF THat dressing where A PERSON Said it tASTED LIKE applebee's. She AND OTHERS DID CUT Back on the sugAR, USING AS LITTLE as 1/2 cup TO 1 1/4 CUP INSTeAD OF 1 1/2 CUPS. YOU May haVE TO STart out with less sugAR and ADD TO Taste.

"This was great and I think a lot like Applebees. I only used 1 1/4 cups sugar, some of the bacon grease and added a little more cornstarch since it didn't seem to get thick. I served it over spinich with grilled shrimp and chopped red onion, roasted red pepper and toasted almond slices. UMMMM. I will be making this a lot! Thanks for the recipe. Now I don't have to go to Applebees to satisfy my craving."
