Applebee's is not only the world's largest casual dining chain, the restaurant was also one of the first of its kind to offer better-for-you menu options when they first partnered with Weight Watchers back in 2004. Now Applebee's is introducing even more lightened-up New American choices with the new Great Tasting and Under 550 Calories Menu. Here's the skinny on the latest two dishes added to their already-great lineup of fresh, healthy choices that you don't need to cook up in your own kitchen.

* Roma Pepper Steak: This grilled seven-ounce sirlion is topped with chunky Roma pepper relis, and served with a grilled Portobello mushroom cap that's stuffed with a creamy, white wine artichoke cheese spread. We're not entirely sure how this is diet, but we'll most assuredly take Applebee's word for it.
* Savory Cedar Salmon: A smoky, fire-grilled salmon filet is a welcome new addition to the menu, especially since it is topped off with artichoke sauce and paired with a medley of seasonal vegetables as well as herbed potatoes.
