Olive Garden Salad Dressing

I tend to get a bit overzealous when it comes to buying produce, lettuce in particular. Well, I call it overzealous, friends and family, they call it eccentric, but what can you do? Everything just always looks so fresh and delicious when I’m shopping, and all sorts of recipes start cycling through my brain, that, before I know it, I have enough lettuce to feed a small army. This week I will be having at least one salad every day. First up is going to be a knock off of the salad that I always enjoy at Olive Garden. I stumbled upon a recipe that is a clone of their dressing, changed it up a bit, and really enjoyed it. There is nothing like homemade salad dressing for freshness.

Olive Garden Salad Dressing

 ¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil

⅓ cup white vinegar

¼ cup water

1 .7-oz. packet Italian dressing mix

1 t. sugar

1 T. Duke’s mayonnaise

¼ t. dry mustard

¼ t. dried parsley flakes

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

 Whisk all ingredients together in a medium bowl until emulsified. Pour into a container and refrigerate for up to two weeks. I like to use a high-speed blender to blend mine.

Yum yum yum - I do love a good salad topped with some kind of delicious chicken, like rotisserie. With garlic toast its a meal fit for a queen!
