Let’s be honest here, who doesn’t love a Cheesecake Factory salad? They’re pretty good, always massive and probably just as bad for you as many of the other meals there. Still amazing though. Here’s how you can re-create the meal:

Ingredients: 

  • Romaine Lettuce, Chopped
  • Corn off the cobb, Bacon bits, chopped apples, sliced avocado, and chopped red pepper.
  • You can mix it all together with your favorite dressing or a ranch dressing.
  • Add on a protein as well like BBQ Salmon or BBQ shrimp for an extra flavor.

Instructions: 

  • Mix it all together like you would a salad for a great taste and a filled stomach to follow.

2. Avocado Egg Rolls

Cheaper than the restaurant version and probably better for you as well! dig into these great starters and one of the best of the Cheesecake Factory favorites.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 avocados, halved, peeled and seeded
  • 1 Roma tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 egg roll wrappers

For the Cilantro Dipping Sauce: 

  • 3/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, loosely packed
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and deveined, optional
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions: 

  • To make the cilantro dipping sauce, combine cilantro, sour cream, jalapeno, mayonnaise, garlic and lime juice in the bowl of a food processor; season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium high heat.
  • In a medium bowl, gently mash avocados using a potato masher. Add tomato, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper, to taste, and gently toss to combine.
  • Working one at a time, place avocado mixture in the center of each wrapper. Bring the bottom edge of the wrapper tightly over the filling, folding in the sides. Continue rolling until the top of the wrapper is reached. Using your finger, rub the edges of the wrapper with water, pressing to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and avocado mixture.
  • Working in batches, add egg rolls to the Dutch oven and fry until evenly golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Serve immediately with cilantro dipping sauce.
