This is a a review of the dressing, which was top notch. I just threw everything, including the whole garlic cloves, into the VitaMix and let 'er rip - turned out to be a lovely creamy Italian dressing. I added some lemon pepper because I put that in everything, and used freshly grated Romano because that's what I had - terrific dressing - thank you!
I've always been a fan of the chopped salad at Maggiano's so I've wanted to try to make it myself for some time now. I'm not much of a cook so I was a bit intimated when it called for a food processor. Well... I used my "magic bullet" for the dressing and it turned out great. My husband (who doesn't really like salad), couldn't get enough of this one. Thanks!!!
I made this last night for my monthly canasta game, and it was wonderful. It tastes just like the salad at Maggiano's.
We love this salad at Maggiano's and it is just like it. We had it with a recipe on the internet for the Maggiano's fried zucchini. Thanks for the recipe.
This was absolutely delightful and delicious! I made it exactly as written, except I left out the blue cheese (because I quite dislike it). The avocado was also a nice touch. The dressing is fantastic and will also be made often. Really a great salad! Thanks for posting this one. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
