My Personal Olive Garden Dressing Recipe

Updated on June 3, 2015


This is a recipe my Nana gave to me and I absolutely LOVE it. If you are an Olive Garden fan you must try this recipe. I was out spending money on Olive Garden just for the salad and bread sticks. Now, I can save money and enjoy it at my own dining room table. This is by far the closest I have ever tasted to coming close to the Olive Garden mouth watering dressing.

1 pkg of Italian (all natural) salad dressing mix

•1/2 c .olive oil

•1/4 cup red wine vinegar

•1 qt. teaspoon oregano

•1/2 teaspoon sugar

•3 tablespoons water

•Jar or container with tight fitting lid


1.Pour vinegar into jar

2. Add water to the jar

3. Add Italian dressing mix into the jar

4. Add oregano

5. Add sugar

6. Cover jar and shake vigorously until contents are well blended.

7. Pour over salad and enjoy

Side note: If your container/jar is not full and the mixture taste a little to tangy, feel free to add more water until mixture suits your taste buds.
