Olive Garden’s Salad Dressing (Copycat Version)

I find it just as easy, more tasty and far more economical to make my own salad dressing. The salad dressing at Olive Garden is probably my husband’s favorite. I actually found this by accident when I went looking for a new homemade dressing to make to complement a meal I was making for a friend after surgery. The week 22 recipe in the 52 Week New Recipe Challenge is a copycat version of Olive Garden’s salad dressing. My husband, the expert on this dressing, was pleasantly surprised.
