this recipe plenty of times without the egg or
the pectin (which can be hard to find in some
places) and although it's a little on the thin
side, it's still totally tasty.
; easy to make
this... had to go out and buy my some of the
stuff cuz I am not much of a cook it was cheaper for me to buy
the dressing for 3.50 a bottle. Just ask the waitress. I buy it all
the time now.
have tried this recipe
and love it!! really is like the olive garden's recipe!! i enjoyed
it very much as did my company (who were asking for the recipe! ;)
I just love y;our site. I
have wanted the recipe for the dressing at Olive Garden for years.
Thank you. It is just like it!!!
This recipe is delicious
and can easily make modifications to suit your personal taste or
Use egg beaters
egg-substitute in place of the raw eggs in the recipe. Egg beaters
will give the same results and normally have a longer shelf life
than fresh eggs.
This is a great recipe. I
used it at a party and everyone loved it. They all thought I went
and bought it from the Olive Garden. It was very easy to put
together, it just takes a little time.
i made this salad
dressing and it was nothing like olive garden's.i was
disappointed.on the other hand the dressing was good.very
Try ⅛ tsp. xanthan gum in
place of pectin and egg. Xanthan gum is used in almost all
commercially prepared salad dressings as a thicking agent. Also, use
⅛ tsp. vitamin C powder as a preservative.
I have found that just
using Newman's Own Italian dressing and adding a good bit of grated
parmesan and a little mayo to thicken it comes out just as good too
and is much quicker! My family thought I had gone to Olive Garden
and brought salad dressing home!
This tastes nothing like
Olive Garden's dressing. It's a very good vinegrette, but not OG at
all. If you don't add pectin or egg you can put it in a spritz
bottle and spritz the salad instead. It's pretty tasty.
Oh yeah, I completely
forgot to add the vegetable oil to the dressing, but my husband said
it didn't need it. He was very impressed. Thanks!
I did the recipe exactly
as stated and it turned out very very close. The only alteration I
would make is for the cheese. I added 2 1/2 Tbsp. grated Digiorno
Romano cheese and I thought that was a bit much. It ended up giving
the dressing a grainy texture. Next time I will use 2 Tbsp. or none
at all. It tasted and even smelled like Olive Garden's dressing
before I even added the cheese. I also used McCormick's minced
garlic dried spice instead of the minced garlic in a jar. Could that
be why some people thought the recipe wasn't at all like Olive
Gardens? My husband went for thirds of salad and my 5 and under kids
loved it. This recipe comes highly recommended in our household!
This is PERFECT! I kept
finding other recipes online calling for MAYO as an ingredient. I
made that one and it was great, but nothing like Olive Garden. This
one is just about it... I did have to add a few teaspoons of sugar
though, because it was too tart. Wonderful! Thanks so much! I wont
be purchasing dressing anymore ;)
I went thru the Culinary
program and one of my instructors used to be a Manager for Olive
Garden. He said they used regular bottled Italian dressing and added
the cheese and spices to that. It'd be alot easier to do it that way
than by scratch!!
This tastes exactly like
the Olive Garden's Dressing! I have passed this recipe along to many
people and everyone agrees.
