I love to go to Olive Garden and get their bread sticks and salad. Lately, I have been craving this goodness in my life! The closest restaurant is about 20 minutes away from my house, which is probably a good thing because I would be going more than I should. You can buy Olive Garden salad dressing in a lot of stores but nothing tastes as good as homemade, and then you have it on hand when you have a craving!
1 packet Italian Dry dressing mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tablespoon mayonnaise
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
- Combine all the ingredients together in a blender. Blend until well mixed.
- Pour into a dressing container. Allow to chill properly, at least an hour.
- Pour on salad and toss. You can use it on a traditional Olive Garden salad or any green salad of your choosing!
