Every time I took a bus trip to Longaberger (I was a consultant), everyone knew I was headed to Popeye's in Dresden for this chicken salad on a croissant, onion rings, and a peanut butter shake. They knew to expect pointing when asking directions, cause I was sure to have a mouth full! Dave Longaberger grew up in Dresden, and his nickname was Popeye. The restaurant used to be run by his family for a long time, and this was a favorite of many. Now that they aren't as active, it was even more important to share this great salad. Feel free to smile and point rather than reply while eating it! :)
