"My whole family loves Olive Garden's Salad! There are already a couple of recipes here for the dressing, so here is a recipe for the salad itself."
Serving Size: 1 (93 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"VERY TASTY!! My 2 1/2 yr old had three helpings, and I gave myself a slight tummy ache! Our go to salad when we want Italian."
"Just like the real thing!"
"Really good. I added more tomatoes and less onion just to personal taste. But a very good easy to follow receipe!"
"I usually order this salad and their Zuppa Toscana and rarely order anything else off the menu. I was out of pepperoncini so a slice of serrano chili filled in the role nicely. Omitted the croutons because we served this with Recipe #69004. Made my own quick vinaigrette recipe as follows: 1/2 cup white wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, pinch of unbleached white sugar. pinch salt, few sprinkles of freshly ground black pepper. Allow to marinate at least an hour for best flavor. Thank you! cg"
"I served this along with my Meatloaf Muffins (Recipe #517655). The combination was irresistible!"
"Great salad. Everyone loved it. For Tees family 4x the recipe for 25 people. Had a little left over."
"I actually crave this salad combination often. It is so simple but a great combination and is just like Olive Garden's famous house salad. I used a combination of romaine and iceburg lettuces. I made my own oil and red wine vinegar dressing with a pinch of sugar and oregano. Just like at Olive Garden, the peppers were my favorite part. Thanx!"
"This recipe is GREAT!! My family had 3rds (including my 2 young children). I followed the recipe exactly....Definitely a keeper!!!"
"DH isn't a huge veggie fan, but he likes Olive Garden's salad. This hit the spot. We left out the peppers and olives and used Salad Spritzer italian spray on our's - for a very simple low calorie dressing. We really like this. Thanks for sharing!"
"This was a great salad! I will definitely make it again! I served it with #15220. Thank you for sharing this!"
"This really hits the spot. Who needs to go to Olive Garden when you have this recipe? I used Paul Newman's Caesar dressing, which is not overpowering but went with the salad perfectly. I have made this salad several times now, using grape tomatoes on occasion, instead of the roma tomatoes. I have also substituted kalamata olives at times."
"Living in England, it's not often that I get to go to Olive Garden and I have been craving their salad lately. This hit the spot, although I would recommend using a copycat dressing recipe. I think the authentic Olive Garden salad also uses a blend of Romaine and Iceberg. Thanks for a super salad recipe that I'll make over and over through the summer!"
"I got rave reviews from the ladies in my small bible study group for the salad. I made as directed, using Paul Newman's Italian Salad dressing. Really liked the addition of the pepperoncini peppers. Just loved it. Thanks. Made for Holiday Tag"
"This was very tasty! I made it just as stated. I used "Recipe#3250". It was delicious. I love Olive Garden's salad so this is a winner."
