One of my favorite salads…the Santa Fe Salad at the Cheesecake Factory (minus the chicken of course). I decided to try and replicate it for our holiday party this year. I found many different websites trying to replicate the salad dressing. This recipe was adapted from cdkitchen. I felt like the original recipe was missing some flavor so I decided to add some peanut butter and a little more agave nectar. I also topped the salad with some freshly fried corn tortilla strips to add some texture.
The end result was pretty close to the original salad I love at Cheesecake Factory, and more importantly, absolutely delicious! It’s a great feeling when you can recreate some of your favorite restaurant recipes at home![subscribe_box]
