    Looking for a Bravo! recipe

    Hi. I'm looking for a recipe for the Traditional Italian Dressing on the Bravo Chopped Salad. It's a nice blend, not too tangy, not too much vinegar. I have not been able to locate any recipes from Bravo! online. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place. Can anybody help?

    A Google search did not help me find what you are looking for. Are you referrring to the Bravo network or something else?

    Bravo! and Brio are Tuscan style Italian restaurants. I live in Ohio, but have seen them in other states. I, too, did a search, and found nothing. Bummer! They have a delicious dressing I'd like to duplicate.

    Thanks for looking!

    Does someone has the recipe for the flavored oil or the bravo chopped salad?

    Bread Dipping Olive Oil (Similar to Bravo) #375466 is here at zaar for the dipping oil and here is the Bravo salad I have in my recipe files. I believe the dressing is the same as already posted in this thread. For the salt and pepper mix I keep a bottle of salt and pepper premixed together for cooking: one part pepper to two parts salt in an empty spice bottle.


    50g Italian bacon, cut bite size
    2 Tablespoons Bravo Italian Balsamic Vinaigrette
    80g Romaine lettuce, cleaned
    1 hard boiled egg, sliced
    4 Tablespoons Bravo Italian Balsamic Vinaigrette

    1. Stir fry bacon in 2 Tablespoons of Bravo Italian Balsamic Vinaigrette.
    2. Hard boil egg; peel and cut into four wedges.
    3. Arrange lettuce on a platter.
    4. Top with hard boiled egg, cooked Italian bacon with the dressing from the pan, and 4 Tablespoons of Bravo Italian Balsamic Vinaigrette.

    16 oz. Balsamic vinegar
    3/4 cup whole grain mustard
    1 Tablespoon salt and pepper mix
    1/4 cup basil, fresh, finely chopped
    2 Tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
    2 Tablespoons garlic, chopped
    8 oz. brown sugar
    48 ounces canola oil

    This isn't Bravo's Dipping Sauce, but here is a bread dipping sauce that is comparable to Carrabbas. You may be able to tweak it to your liking:


    1/8 teaspoon oregano
    1/8 teaspoon basil
    1/8 teaspoon rosemary
    A pinch of Kosher salt
    1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper (I use a little less)
    A dash of red pepper flakes
    1 large clove of garlic (crushed). I use granulated garlic.
    2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

    Mix together your dry spices. Add the crushed garlic. Place on a small saucer. Pour olive oil over the mixture.

    Dip your favorite Italian bread and ENJOY!!!!

    (I personally like to let the oil and spices set for about 1/2 hour to allow the flavors to meld).

    Hope this helps.

    If you want the creamy horseradish dressing:

    1 cup sour cream
    1/4 cup grated fresh horseradish
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    Place all of the ingredients into a medium mixing bowl and whisk until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow flavors to meld.

    I added a little milk to make it a bit more dressing like.
    Next time I'm going to try plain yogurt instead of the sour cream but I can't attest that it's going to work out... icon_wink.gif
