The first time i visited red robin was few years ago back when we were still living in Wichita , Kansas . But since then , although they have couple of red robin’s restaurants around our area , we barely went there . It’s just hamburgers anyway , that’s what i think . Until few months ago , we set a playdate for the kids over there , and i ordered their crispy chicken salad with honey mustard poppy seed dressing . I always love honey mustard , so i thought this was a good choice , i didn’t regret it , it was great !!
And i found the dressing online , so I made the dressing earlier this afternoon and refrigerated it . The salad itself of course is very simple , you can choose your own vegetables , but i used iceberg lettuce , shallots , cucumber , carrots , red bell pepper , and to make it similar to what red robin’s salad has , i added bacon bits , chopped hard boiled eggs , and also chicken . As for the chicken , my husband grilled the chicken breasts ( bone in ) , and he put some steak seasoning , and added honey at the last minute of grilling . So the chicken was very tasty , juicy and also has a nice glaze . He calls it , honey glazed chicken 🙂
PS: This is a nice and healthy dinner , has lots of carbs from the vegetables and protein from the grilled chicken breasts and also the eggs , the only tips i have is not to overdress your salad with the dressing , by dipping your fork into a small bowl of dressing before taking a bite .
Anyway , here is the recipe for the dressing :
1 1/3 c. of mayonnaise ( i used hellman’s )
4 1/2 tbsp. of sugar
2 tbsp. of honey
2 tbsp. yellow mustard
2 tbsp. dijon mustard ( i used grey poupon )
2 tbsp. white vinegar
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tbsp. poppy seed ( didn’t add this , cos didn’t have it on hand and it’s too expensive LOL )
Mix all ingredients together and whisk until well blended . Refrigerate , it’ll last for 7 days .
