The only thing we really like at Olive Garden is the soup and salad offering. This recipe is pretty close to the salad dressing.

Ingredients:
1 packet Good Seasonings Italian Dressing
(Ingredients needed to make dressing; oil, water, vinegar)
½ tsp. dried Italian Seasoning
½ tsp. table salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
½ tsp. sugar
¼ tsp. garlic powder
½ tbsp. mayonnaise (no Miracle Whip, please)
¼ cup olive oil
2 tbs. white vinegar
1 ½ tbsp. water

Thanks, S.R., I love their salad dressing. But I also like everything I've ever ordered there. The only thing I'm not crazy about are those sausage-shaped breads.

I googled it and CopyKat.com lists this recipe:

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoon corn syrup
2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoon Romano cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt, or one clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
1 tablespoon lemon juice
sugar (optional)

My DH loves their dressing so much I bought a bottle of it for him for Christmas! Love their food. Plan on doing their currient special. I think it's $12.95 for buy one entree and take one entree home. Can't beat that.

I've purchased their dressing before but do need to make my own instead. TFS the recipes!

I also purchased one of their cheese graters! I had on similar but it broke. Could not find a replacement at the original place of purchase and was fussing in OG one day. The server said she could sell me one. I forgot how much it was, but the price was included on the receipt. Ahem...forgive me...I have never seen a greater grater. Big Grin

Last weekend we were 250 miles from home. Stopped for lunch at the local Olive Garden. DH was intrigued by the grater and the waiter said he could add one to our tab. He came back to say they were sold out. I believe the price was $16.

Pampered chef used to have the cheese graters. I have had one of theirs for several years.

I picked up a grater like the one they use at Olive Garden at Bed Bath and Beyond. CA Lori, that recipe sounds good too!

So easy to make this, I don't know why anyone would buy it or even bother to measure! LOL I make this fresh every day.

What I do is mix EVOO, apple cider vinegar, a crushed garlic clove, dash of salt, pepper, Italian herb blend, stevia, and a squirt of Hellman's. Very easy, tasty, and even almost healthy! Smile

CALori - but the Olive Garden dressing doesn't have mayo in it or it would be creamy. It's clear! and for those who are intolerant - beware of the corn syrup.
