    Olive Garden does NOT put mayonnaise in their salad dressing, and no halfway decent restaurant would cook with it.

    This recipe is delicious! Don’t be fooled by the mayonnaise and the color. Cut back on the vinegar slightly. I added a table spoon of sugar and 2 tsp of veg oil because I started with too much vinegar. Start with 1/4 cup and add more to taste. Also add a couple of tsp of salt and boom! To die for….

    I have tried so many recipes including this one and none are closer that my own copykat.

    Ingredients:

    3/8 cup of lemon juice
    1/4 c white vinegar
    2 splenda packets
    1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    2 tbs romano cheese
    1 package Good Seasons Italian dressing mix
    1/4 cup 2% milk
    3/4 cup canola oil

    Mix all of the ingredients well except the oil then whisk in the oil or, put all the ingredients except the oil in a Good Seasons container, shake well, add the oil and shake again. Let it set in the fridge at least a day to allow the cheese and other ingredients to merge.

    This recipe is close but there still is a distinctive flavor missing. I hope to figure it out some day…..

    I just tried this because I’ve been madly craving an Olive Garden salad. Followed the recipe exactly and it came out way too tart/sour, unfortunately. It ends up with a very watery consistency and what I felt was an overly strong vinegar bite and the color comes out like a milky white color. I ended up putting in probably a tablespoon of sugar to cut the intense vinegar bite…it was better then. Honestly haven’t been to OG in a while but this didn’t have the lightly oily consistency I remember…this version seems much more liquidy so I would suggest maybe a little less vinegar and maybe a tad more oil? Overall, it’s not awful and the aftertaste really is pretty close….I used the proper salad ingredients, so it tasted close enough to make me happy and satisfy my craving. Thank you!
