Celebrate National Watermelon Day with Applebee's + Enter to Win a $100 Gift Card

I was compensated in the form of a Applebee's Gift Card through a campaign with the PR. All opinions are my own.


When it comes to those family nights out where we seek out family friendly restaurants to take the kids, I like to head to places that not only offer a variety of dishes that both the kids and myself and my husband can enjoy, but also that offer a family friendly environment. We enjoy going to a variety of restaurants when we go out with the kids, and one place that we enjoy heading to with the kids is our local Applebee's. So when we were given the chance to check out some of the new menu items from the Applebee's Wood Fired Grill Salads, we were excited to check them out and make it a family night out!


I like that with the new menu items from the Wood Fired Grill Salads that they offer ingredients that remind me of the summer. These salads include a variety of flavors that are not only incredibly tasty but also offered at family friendly prices starting at just $8.99, and you can choose from the following Wood Fired Salad options:

·        NEW Southwestern Steak Salad: Hand-Cut Wood Fired USDA Choice Top Sirloin Steak paired with chimichurri, pico de gallo, corn and black bean salsa, cheddar, crispy tortilla strips and a creamy house-made cilantro ranch dressing.

·        NEW Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad: Mixed greens, cucumbers, feta, almonds and house-made creamy mint-Greek yogurt dressing. Also available with Spicy Blackened Chicken.

·        NEW Spicy Blackened Grilled Chicken, Avocado and Grapefruit Salad: Mixed greens, pickled in-house red onions, cilantro leaves and house-made champagne vinaigrette.

·        NEW Crispy Chicken ‘N Spicy Cornbread Salad: Mixed greens, made-in-house jalapeno cornbread croutons, grape tomatoes, shredded cheddar, applewood-smoked bacon and buttermilk dressing.
With the options on salads, I found that they were not only a great selection to choose from, but the salads are packed with the wood fired grill flavors that are not only great for summer but for anytime of the year. After looking over the options, I chose to go with the Grilled Watermelon and Spicy Shrimp Salad. I found the grilled watermelon to be so mouthwatering and with the spices that are on the shrimp, I found that the watermelon and mint Greek yogurt dressing balanced the salad out. Giving me a salad with a sweet and spicy kick, which is exactly what I was looking for when I ordered this salad!

Along with the salad options, we of course found many other options for the rest of the family to enjoy, and at the end of our meal we walked away with a happy family and full bellies! Making the choice to head to our local Applebee's with the family one that we are always very satisfied with doing! And right now through August 3rd you can enter for a chance to win a $100 Applebee's Gift Card. You can do this by sharing a photo of one of the salads from the Wood Fired Grill menu or your own favorite salads, or you can even snap a photo of your best watermelon smile using fruit to make the smiley face then share the photos on your Twitter and or Instagram accounts tagging Applebee's and using the hashtags #WoodFired and #WatermelonSmile. Also be sure to head to your local Applebee's on August 3rd and help them celebrate National Watermelon Day!
