This is a copycat recipe for Olive Garden's Insalata (the salad they serve tableside). Time does not include the 24 hour chill time.

While my family thought that this was good, DH thought this dressing was the best he's ever had. Guess I'll be making this a lot! Going to have a bottle of that dressing on hand from now on.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put dressing ingredients into a bottle and shake well. Refrigerate 24 hours before using.
  2. Chill one salad bowl in freezer for at least 30 minutes. Place bag of salad in bowl. Place on top of lettuce the red onion, black olives, banana peppers, tomatoes, and croutons. Add some freshly grated Parmesan cheese if you like, and add plenty of Olive Garden Insalada Dressing on top, shaking before using.
