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!

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!
