This Copycat Olive Garden Salad Dressing is as close as it gets to the real deal, without the high fructose corn syrup!
Two years ago I did some copycat Olive Garden recipes for you to make for Valentine’s Day. I did a variation of Olive Garden’s Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo and Black Tie Mousse Cake for dessert. Olive Garden is definitely one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. Don’t believe me? I have copycat Zuppa Toscana, Chicken & Gnocchi Soup, and the famous Olive Garden Breadsticks recipes too! I definitely used to go to Olive Garden a lot more before I got married and had kids, but honestly, I don’t need to go back. My homemade versions are just as good and a lot cheaper to make myself.
This recipe is top notch! Now, I know you can buy the Olive Garden Salad Dressing at pretty much any grocery store, but this is as close as you can get to the real deal, without the high fructose corn syrup. (Check the label!) My husband is obsessed with this dressing and won’t stop asking me to make more. He can down the whole bottle himself, it’s ridiculous! Haha. Next time you have salad, you need to try this dressing! You won’t regret it! It might even become an obsession for you like it has for my husband!
