Something New Every Day

Day 2 – A new recipe

Posted on: May 1, 2012

Today I decided to try a new recipe I have been meaning to try. It’s a copy cat of the dressing at the Olive Garden. I knew I wanted to try it so I had all of the ingredients. My experience has been usually with more then a few ingredients generally things are more involved then I want them to be. Today I was pleasantly surprised this was not the case. I was also happy that these are ingredients that are good to have around the house for many different recipes as well. The only thing I cringed when I bought was mayonnaise. Sorry all you mayo lovers out there I am a miracle whip girl until the end. I have regretfully learned in the past the sweet I love about miracle whip does not make it a good mayo substitute so I sucked it up and used it in the recipe. =)

Here is my before ingredients:

Here is my finished product. Very easy I must say. Just threw everything in the blender and mixed. After mixing it sits in the refrigerator for a bit.

Verdict is I don’t think it tastes a thing like Olive Gardens. I have to say I do like it but it was a little too much vinegar for my taste. Thru reading the comments it looks like there may have been more to the steps then just mixing them together. Should have known was too easy. =) So a re-try is in order for another day. Until then I will let it cool in refrigerator overnight to see if there is any taste difference after sitting for awhile. I guess there is very little that we can know until we try.

I have included a link below to the page the recipe came from if anyone wants to try it:
