I’m a big fan of Olive Garden. I think my Nana is the only person I know who does not love it. Other than her, I don’t think I would trust someone who doesn’t like it!
I could eat there every week, even if I just did the unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks. Now through Pinterest, I can pull off the hat trick and make all three at home! See previous blogs for the Olive Garden breadsticks and their Zuppa Toscana recipe.
Now for the salad:
1/2 C. mayonnaise
1/3 C. white vinegar
1 tsp. vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. corn syrup
2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp. Romano cheese
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. parsley flakes
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
I apparently do not keep a fully stocked kitchen. I didn’t have any Romano cheese, so I replaced it with more Parmesean cheese and I left out the lemon juice.
The salad dressing was amazing. It came out white, which made me a little nervous at first, but it tastes amazing. I went through the first batch within a week and am about to make my second one. I meant to pick up my missing ingredients, but even though I work in a grocery store, I failed to do so. It’s great though because it tastes great the way I made it, missing ingredients and all!
I hope yours turns out fantastic as well and hope you’ll all check out my previous blogs so you can do your own Olive Garden night.
