Copycat Texas Roadhouse Honey French Dressing

I’m guessing that most people go to Texas Roadhouse for the steaks. And they do have some mighty good looking steaks, for sure. But for me, I go for the salads, and in particular, their Chicken Critter Salad. And because I’m a dressing-a-holic, I always order two different salad dressings. Last time, I went with Ranch (a staple) and honey French. This copycat Texas Roadhouse Honey French dressing is a great twist on one of my all-time favorites. It’s just-right-sweet. And it has just the right amount of mustardy goodness.

Copycat Texas Roadhouse Honey French Dressing

One of the nice things about making dressings at home is that you can adjust the flavors to your tastes. In another sign that I really loved this copycat Texas Roadhouse honey French dressing, I didn’t adjust a thing. It didn’t need to be any more or less sweet. It didn’t need more or less mustard. I liked it just as it was.

Copycat Outback Steakhouse Blue Cheese Vinaigrette

You know the old saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”? Well, that’s what I first thought after making this copycat Outback Steakhouse blue cheese vinaigrette. I mean, heck, it isn’t the most attractive dressing ever. But then I poured it over my fresh homemade garden salad and thought “Yee haw! Now THAT’S good!”. Two great flavors (a classic vinaigrette and blue cheese) come together to make me one happy guy. Give me extra, because I really love this dressing!

Copycat Outback Steakhouse Blue Cheese Vinaigrette

As much as I am a fan of blue cheese, I actually have a ‘blue cheese limit’. I just cannot do the big chunks. That’s the beauty of making this copycat Outback Steakhouse blue cheese vinaigrette at home. I got the blue cheese crumbles to be just my size. Perfect on a salad.

Copycat Portillo’s Sweet Italian Salad Dressing

I gotta have a little something, a little sweet, in my vinegar-based dressings. I am a fan of vinegar but sometimes it’s a bit strong for me. That’s where the sweet comes in. It tames that vinegar hit down, but keeps the vinegar flavor. This copycat Portillo’s sweet Italian salad dressing does just that. Super tasty balsamic vinegar meets up with just a bit of sugar, just enough, to make this a wonderfully smooth dressing. With a hint of garlic and oregano, this was the perfect dressing for my side salad tonight.

Copycat Portillo's Sweet Italian Salad Dressing

If you happen to have any leftover of this copycat Portillo’s sweet Italian salad dressing, make sure you give it one heck of a good long shake before serving it. The oil likes to separate from the vinegar. A good shake takes care of that.

I updated the original recipe to specify that you might want to add a bit more sugar and salt than stated. I made the dressing and then gave it a good taste. It needed something, so I added a pinch more of both sugar and salt. I gave it another good shake and tasted it again. Perfect!

Copycat Texas Roadhouse French Salad Dressing

Oh my goodness me. How happy were we when we made this copycat Texas Roadhouse French salad dressing! We love grabbing a big ole salad for lunch at Texas Roadhouse (the chicken critter salad is a winner), and French is always a great choice as the dressing. Well, this recipe nails that great flavor big time. This is one of our all-time favorite dressings.

Copycat Texas Roadhouse French Salad Dressing

This copycat Texas Roadhouse French salad dressing is the reason we have to put our dressing in individual dressing serving cups on our plates. We absolutely cannot be trusted with a container of this dressing nearby. Sorry, but self-control goes out the window when this dressing shows up. It’s incredibly delicious.

We finely minced the onion for this dressing, but you could also grate it for a little smoother texture. Grated onion tends to be a bit stronger than it’s minced cousin, so you might want to use a little less and taste as you add to see if you need the entire onion.

You really do want the dressing to sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving. We actually prefer for it to ‘get happy’ in the fridge overnight. Just stir before serving and you’re ready to eat!

Copycat Outback Steakhouse Ranch Salad Dressing

I have an addiction to Ranch dressing. It’s probably the reason I love wings so much. I can use wings as and excuse to feed my dressing habit. This copycat Outback Steakhouse Ranch salad dressing didn’t help me control my habit at all. In fact, it’s worse now. I wanted to drink this dressing out of the bottle. I didn’t even care if anyone was watching. It’s perfectly buttermilk-y. Perfectly creamy. And it has just the right hint of garlic. Man, oh man, do I love this dressing!

Copycat Outback Steakhouse Ranch Salad Dressing

Make sure that you let this copycat Outback Steakhouse Ranch salad dressing rest at least 30 minutes before serving. Overnight is even better. Just give it a little stir before serving. You’ll get about 2 cups of dressing from this recipe. I’d call that 12 servings, but it really depends on how much you love dressing. If you’re normal, you’ll likely get more servings. If you’re like me, a true Ranch-aholic, you’ll be happy if you get the full 12 servings!

Of course, this dressing is also perfect (in flavor and consistency) for dipping your favorite vegetables. It’s not just for wings! I mean, salads.

Copycat Texas Roadhouse Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

My go-to meal at Texas Roadhouse is the Chicken Critter Salad. Tender fried chicken pieces on top a simple salad is what I like. What I crave, though, are the dressings. This copycat Texas Roadhouse Honey mustard salad dressing is a pretty close copy of one of my favorites. Not too mustard-y, and just slightly sweet it’s a nice change from my usual, Ranch. The smoked paprika adds a nice light earthy taste with just a hint of smokiness. I know what you’re probably thinking. He goes to a steakhouse for a salad? Yeah, I do. It’s a really good salad, with a really great dressing that I can now enjoy at home!

Copycat Texas Roadhouse Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

The easiest way to make this copycat Texas Roadhouse Honey Mustard salad dressing is in a mason jar. Just put everything in there, seal it, and shake real well. You’ll want to refrigerate any leftovers, if there are any. Set the dressing out on the counter about 30 minutes before serving and give it one good shake before using. The dressing will ‘harden’ when it’s refrigerated. That’s perfectly normal. That few minutes at room temperature will ‘free’ it up and it’ll be ready to serve.

This copycat Texas Roadhouse Ranch salad dressing is a pretty close copy of my favorite. And I do mean favorite. I could drink this stuff. I always order two dressings at the restaurant.

I always double the ingredients in this copycat Texas Roadhouse Ranch salad dressing. Not only is it great on my sorta-copycat of the Chicken Critter salad, it’s fantastic for dipping Buffalo wings and chips. It’s also perfect as a veggie dip for an afternoon snack. I also need more because well, I use a lot of it!

I have no idea how long this dressing would keep in the fridge. Sorry. It never lasts long enough to find out.

Copycat Olive Garden Salad Dressing

Last week was salad week here. That means fresh greens, lots of different vegetables and some fruits, sliced grilled chicken, and of course, homemade salad dressings. This copycat Olive Garden salad dressing has a nice rich cheese flavor. There’s a little sweetness and just a hint of citrus. It’s a well-balanced dressing, and even though it has vinegar too, it is tamed down a bit by the mayonnaise. I’m not a big fan of overly-vinegary anything, specially dressings. This one doesn’t scare me off, not one bit. That’s a good thing, of course!

Copycat Olive Garden Salad Dressing

I recommend starting with less vinegar if you want a thicker dressing. Begin with a tablespoon and add more if you like. I kept this copycat Olive Garden salad dressing in some little glass jars that I picked up in the kitchen section of our local grocery store. They seal air-tight, making them the perfect containers for salad dressings. You could just as easily use Mason jars. Mason jars are always great for making and storing dressings.

Of course you can transfer the dressing to fancier containers, such as cruets, for serving if you wish.

Also try my copycat of the great Ranch dressing from Texas Roadhouse!

Copycat Applebee’s Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

We both so loved this copycat of the honey mustard salad dressing from Applebee’s that we ended up making a big batch for salad week. Salad week comes along every few weeks here. Like the name implies, for that one week we eat nothing but salads. I look forward to salad week. In a way, I used to also look forward to salad week ending. That was until this dressing came along. Delightfully creamy, it’s a sweet mustardy dressing that strikes just the right balance. I don’t usually like things that are overly mustardy, and this dressing is spot-on perfect.

Copycat Applebee's Honey Mustard Dressing

I would not use a light mayonnaise when making this copycat Applebee’s honey mustard salad dressing. I think a full-strength mayonnaise gives it a better consistency. Sure, you can use a light one if you prefer, but I think the extra calories are worth the better thickness and taste. For me, that means Blue Plate mayonnaise. It’s the only one I use, no matter what the recipe is. And there’s no reason to skimp on the Dijon, use a good, quality mustard. The better the ingredients, the better the dressing!
