There are so many copycat recipes out there today, I have to wonder if any of them are from disgruntled employees who have snagged these recipes for revenge. One thing I like, well I guess the only thing I like about Olive Garden is their soup, salad, and bread stick lunch. It is hearty, endless, and very filling. Their soup may have been made in vats from their distributor but it hits the spot. But I must say their salad dressing is tops, probably also made in large vats no where near Italy. This is a delicious dressing and if it was served to me without the “hey this is just like Olive Garden’s!” I would still love it.
Creamy Italian Dressing (sorta like Olive Garden’s)
1 Pkt Good Seasons Italian Dressing made according to package directions
3 T. mayonnaise
2 T. sugar
2 T. good extra virgin olive oil
3 T. Parmesan cheese, grated
Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. Serve over your favorite Salad. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
