This Teriyaki Chicken Salad is my take on Red Robin’s Banzai Salad. It’s got sweet teriyaki chicken and mandarin oranges, toasted almonds, edamame and a creamy honey mustard dressing.
I’m not ashamed to say that we eat out at Red Robin probably 3 times a month, maybe more if you count the occasional lunch. It’s close, it’s reasonable and it has food that we all love (those fries though, mmm!). Last summer they introduced some new menu items and I hesitantly tried the Banzai Chicken Salad. It’s got grilled teriyaki chicken, and a sweet and tangy honey mustard dressing.
Never in a million years did I think I would fall in love with this chicken salad, but holy smokes! It quickly became my favorite. A few weeks ago I decided that I needed to come up with a recipe at home so I could have it more than 3 times a month!
I searched for a copycat of their honey mustard dressing, and combined a few recipes to come up with one I really liked. I added edamame to my salad for some extra protein and crunch, and topped it with toasted sesame seeds and almonds.
The teriyaki sauce is sweet and sticky and gives a nice smoky flavor to the chicken, while the oranges provide a soft and sweet element. The toasted almonds and sesame seeds give a great texture and the honey mustard dressing is just the right combination of creamy, sweet and tangy. Perfection!
