– This turned out great. We used vegan mayonnaise instead of miracle whip, but it still tasted like Olive Garden’s recipe to us. Also, we used 1 garlic clove instead of 1/4 teaspoon of garlic salt. If you are not a garlic lover, that may turn you off quite a bit (my parents were over for supper and they didn’t even touch this dressing on the table because it smelled too much like garlic).
– Pretty good. I did add more garlic, using fresh through a garlic press, and about a teaspoon of sugar. It tasted a lot like what I remember.
– Tastes great. I live in the UK so never been to Olive Garden (not sure if they have any here). I didn’t have white wine vinegar and due to people adding sugar I substituted it with white balsamic. I didn’t feel I had to add anything to it at all to sweeten it up and the balance of flavours are good. I mixed my own Italian seasons (a pinch of basil, marjoram, thyme, oregano, rosemary) didn’t have garlic salt, so ground a pinch in and used garlic granules. Will definitely make again.
– Very good, close to Olive Garden and greatly enjoyed by everyone in our circle of friends and family. We use regular mayo and add a bit of sugar (about a tbsp) but otherwise didn’t change a thing. Thanks, this dressing is a keeper!
