This CopyCat Olive Garden Salad Dressing Recipe is going to save me and hopefully you some big $$’s. I recently became addicted to Olive Garden Salad dressing when Aldi was out of my normal House Vinaigrette. Our family eats many salads all year long but way more in the spring and summer.
CopyCat Olive Garden Salad Dressing Recipe
A couple months back Aldi was out of my favorite House Vinaigrette Salad dressing. I was so bummed as I am really picky about my salad dressing. My hubby was listing off many different salad dressing while shopping at Kroger that I could give a try. Each and everyone he was naming off, I had tried and was not happy with. That was until he said they had a Olive Garden Salad Dressing. I was immediately excited as I have had Olive Garden salad dressing while eating out and really LOVED it. One problem though this stuff is $3.99 per bottle. YIKES!. I broke down and purchased a bottle. I was so happy to have found another dressing for my salads at home but this stuff was just way to pricey for me.
So again last week I was needing dressing and Kroger was having a sale on Olive Garden Salad dressing. Before purchasing another bottle, I came home. The hubby and I made a perfect CopyCat Olive Garden Salad Dressing instead of restocking with store bought dressing. This recipe was good and and the flavors were perfect. No need for us to purchase pricy Olive Garden Salad Dressing any longer.
This recipe looks like way too many ingredients but be patient it comes together quickly and you will probably have most of the ingredients on hand. You can purchase the Italian Dressing packets with a sale or a coupon quite often too.
