Gloria Pitzer's Olive Garden-Style Salad Dressing

Gloria Pitzer's Olive Garden-Style Salad Dressing created by mary winecoff

Gloria Pitzer is known for copying famous foods, but making them healthy at the same time. "I take the junk out of junk food," says Pitzer. "You know what goes into my recipes." Gloria is careful to point out that she doesn't actually know what the big chains put in their food. "I don't try to dissect the foods and figure out the chemical ingredients," she says. "I never, ever try to steal anyone's secret corporate recipe. I just do my best to duplicate the taste." Enjoy!

  • Blend first 5 ingredients (not oil) in blender on high speed 1/2 minute or until smooth. Pour this mixture into the top of a double boiler and add 1/4 cup oil. Stir gently with a whisk over gently boiling water until it begins to thicken and egg is completely cooked. Chill several hours or overnight before using. If the dressing is too thick, add more Italian dressing as needed.
  • Mix together equal amounts of fresh spinach, iceberg and romaine lettuce. Allow 2 cups for each salad. Moisten leaves in dressing, do not saturate; let stand 5 minutes. Add onion rings, radishes, etc.

    We absolutely love this recipe, my husband thought it was a little sweet but I just adjusted the amount of sugar and he was as happy as can be!!! I love the fact that is so easy to make we don't need a dozen ingredients and it only takes about 10 minutes so even us that are not skill cooks can do it... I read a couple other recipes and they suggested leaving the egg raw which I didn't like, that's why I decided to try this recipe because we cook the salad dressing and I'm glad I did, this is our new favorite salad dressingn (after Olive Garden's of course)!!! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us :)

    Excellent dressing! I used it over a spinach salad and used an egg product instead of a regular egg. This makes a lot and I will used it again! I love the tartness of the dressing. Made for ZWT7.
