Olive Garden Salad dressing is the best. Now you can make your own. This is such a simple recipe and it will take no time at all. I am looking forward to making this dressing. One of the best restaurant dressings that I have had. This is a must have with an Italian meal.

So Sad of a recipe !

II don't follow the logic of this. You buy one salad dressing as an ingredient to make another salad dressing. How ridiculous is that?

sams club sells the dressing in nice size bottles

sorry but this tastes nothing like the salad dressing

Never again!! I was totally embarrassed after telling my guests that I had a surprise for dinner.....their favorite salad dressing! I was the one surprised....what a horrible concoction you printed on this site!! Of course, I could have tried it first, but I was so excited to find something wonderful to share. Grrrrrrrr!

I just went to olive garden directly and they sell it by the bottle at the bar area and I pretend i made it .

Why use the Paul Newman?? It tastes like cardboard. I was looking for a real recipe.

Yes, i agree...This recipe is NOT even close to Olive Garden dressing !!!!...This recipe is a joke!

Thanks for saving me the time of trying to make this recipe. Obviously it isn't anything like the real deal from Olive Garden!

I can't believe that anyone would ever believe that this salad dressing is the same as the one served at Olive Garden!!! I thought it was to good to be true when I saw this recipe! It was!!!! I tried this recipe once but I'll never try it again!!! It made my salad taste oily and greasey!!! Ohhh and yes I mamde sure that everything was mixed up real good before I used it!!! It helped a little when I added an extra tablespoon of sugar and six tablespoons of Balsamic vinegar.It still isn't anything like Olive Garden's salad dressing but it cuts down on the oily taste.

Somethings just cant be duplicated!!

I made this dressing and would never do it again. The olive oil rises to the top & jells. I was able to use a knife to break it up & had to shake really hard to mix the ingredients. It doesn't taste like what I can buy for $4.50 at Olive Garden.

todd wilber copy cat receipes is hard to beat really good o g dressing

I agree....every few months I drive 20 miles to the closest OG and buy it there..can't go wrong!!
