    GrillKing's Note:

    This salad with it's dressing is wonderfully authentic in taste to the salad served at the "Olive Garden" restaurants. The dressing recipe makes enough dressing to cover a large bowl of salad.

      Well, I followed this exactly, adding the correct amount of sugar, and all the rest of the ingredients, and found this to be as darn close to Olive Garden salad dressing as there ever was. It was a cross between a vinaigrette and a nice creamy dressing, perfect! It's even better after it sits for a good time after making. Please try this! Made for "I Recommend" tag game 2012

      I didn't feel the dressing was authentic at all. It was too vinegary.

      Can't remember the last time I was at an Olive Garden restaurant, so I have know idea about how authentic this recipe might be! However, I can tell you that this recipe does make for a very delicious salad & an outstanding dressing! I'm usually partial to the red salad dressings while my other half enjoys the creamier ones, but both of us thought this was well-worth a 5-star rating! Thanks for sharing it!
