Olive Garden Salad Dressing Recipe

Olive Garden Salad Dressing Recipe

True confession: I do not like Olive Garden’s salad dressing. But that is probably only because I do not like salad dressing at all.

 

Period. Not.one.single.dressing. Nada. Nope. None.

 

However, I have some kids who are crazy about this dressing, so I make it with my homemade Italian Dressing Mix for them.

I have been building up my repertoire of mixes lately. (Check out my Very Low Carb Flour Mix, All Purpose Seasoning Mix, and BBQ Base mixes!)

 

If you are low carbing, you will want to be careful of seasoning mixes and packets. Many have thickening agents (i.e. arrowroot or cornstarch); others have anti-clumping properties, which can add carbohydrates to the total. Of course, many of us home cooks have been doing many homemade things for years and years—including sauces, seasoning mixes, and more—in an effort to either save money or be able to put into our foods exactly what we want (and know what that is!).

I like to marinate meats in a bbq type/Tex Mex marinade when using them in fajitas, bbq, etc. (Even if I am adding bbq sauce at cooking time, I still love that flavor-infusion from marinading in this mixture!)

One of the primary uses for my BBQ Sauce Base is definitely to make BBQ sauce! I love sweet BBQ—but I also love foods with a little zip. This sauce give me both!

 

I like the sweetness just as it is, but you might like a little more or a little less bulk sweetener. Also, I like the spice as is, but you might want to adjust your base (i.e. omit the chili powder) or lessen the liquid smoke if you feel it is too spicy for your family.

I have been trying to develop a seasoning mix that can be used in meats, fish, vegetables, and salad. I think I am finally there!
