Olive Garden Salad Dressing


Oh boy do I ever love that salad dressing they serve at The Olive Garden. I could eat that salad with those bread sticks forever I tell you. I sure wish we had one here in Saudi. I found this recipe about six years ago and have been making it ever since. This taste identical to the restaurant’s version. I try to keep some in a jar in my fridge at all times because honestly no other salad dressing will ever top it.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1-1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon sunflower oil
2 tablespoons corn syrup
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1. In a small food processor or blender add mayonnaise, vinegar, oil, corn syrup, cheese, garlic, seasoning and lemon juice. Mix until well blended. Store in a jar and refrigerate.

Yields: 3/4 cup

    Thanks for the recipe – I want to try that, but will probably use agave nectar rather than corn syrup. Do you think it will make much difference?

    Claudia I have never used agave nectar what kinda taste does it have? Maybe you could use a light honey as well and opt out of the sugar or do it to taste.

    Okay I just looked it up and it says that agave nectar is sweeter then honey so I would use the honey.

    Amnah its great right :)
