Worked at Buca for over two years, probably had a salad at least three times a week and this tasted nothing like their dressing. It wasn't bad but not that great either.
Lovely and refreshing, with simple ingredients.
An excellent flavorful salad dressing. The dressing still tasted very good the next day, even after refrigeration. Thanks for posting. Janet
This is a very good recipe. I was looking for something that wasn't sweet. I forgot the oregano and thought I would leave out the garlic (seems I add it to everything these days and just wanted a change) but my husband said it was a bit bland without the garlic, so it will be added next time. Very nice compliment to our salads and we'll be making this often. Thanks!
I don't think this tastes like the Buca dressing. It's decent enough and is easier and healthier than bottled dressing, though. I'll try it again and add a little sugar, possibly less olive oil. Also, if you like the consistency of the Buca dressing with the chunkier garlic and onion, then I would hold off adding those until you emulsify the dressing in the blender or perhaps chop them them bigger if you add them at the beginning.
I love anything Buca, and this is a quick and easy recipe. I put it over a salad of romaine, blue cheese, empire apple slices, tomato, croutons and crispy proscuitto. Thanks for posting.
