I was introduced to Cafe Max when we first moved to Dallas by my best friend Tina. And since our move five years ago, I can honesly say without a doubt, this is my favorite place to eat salad. I always get the salad trio. The chicken salad is DELICIOUS! Flavorful, sweet (but not too overpowering). I also get the Ceasar salad (the dressing is really good), then I get the pasta salad which is so rich and tasty. If you live in the Dallas area I stongly recommnend stopping by Cafe Max, they are moderately priced at about $10 dollars but they give you SO MUCH FOOD! However, if your looking for the recipe on their chicken salad I FINALLY found it!! It’s a faboulous salad that is super simple, elegant and flavorful. Trust me it’s so good and perfect for any special brunch occasion.
3-4 Chicken Breast
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup pineapple juice
Toasted Pecans (optional)
Italian Salad Dressing
Mix soy sauce, brown sugar, and pineapple juice. Marinate chicken in mix in a plastic bag or dish for atleast an hour chilled. Once chilled bake chicken and mixture in a baking pan at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. (Make sure chicken cooks all the way through).
While baking, julienne slice pepper and pear.
Once chicken is cooked thoroughly, slice chicken into strips and add pear and pepper slices.
Pour Italian dressing over mix (as much as you desire).
