For a limited time, Applebee's guests can savor the new Fresh Flavors of Summer at a great value, starting at just $9.99.

"Summer is a fantastic time to be in the kitchen because the season delivers so many flavorful, colorful ingredients to use throughout our menu," said Applebee's Executive Chef Michael Slavin. "Inspiration comes from farmers markets, family gardens and fresh fruit off the vine. With our Fresh Flavors of Summer menu, we're putting the best ingredients of the season in the spotlight."

Among the summer ingredients Applebee's is using at the peak of perfection: rich, smooth avocados and artichokes, garden-fresh green beans and red, ripe tomatoes. Citrus, buttery bibb lettuce and an herb-filled green goddess dressing add to the straight-from-the-farmer's market experience.

Highlights from the new Fresh Flavors of Summer include:

  • TheBlackened Sirloin & Garlicky Green Beans is a 7oz. sirloin rubbed with blackened seasonings and basted with lime butter served on a bed of crispy red potatoes tossed in a tomato pesto sauce. A side of fresh-cut garlicky green beans and chunky Roma pepper relish adds color and flavor to this new summertime favorite.

  • TheMargarita Queso Chicken & Shrimp is layered with flavor. Chipotle lime shrimp and grilled chicken in a cilantro lime glaze is served over a flavorful combo of Mexican rice, white queso, corn and black beans. Finishing it with fresh avocado, chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lime adds the perfect amount of fiesta flair.
