Re: You can now buy Olive Garden Italian Salad Dressing in the grocery store!!! ☺

I bought it at Olive Garden. This is what's in it: water, soybean oil, distilled vinegar, high fructose corn syrup, salt, egg, romana cheese, dextrose etc. etc. and the high fructose corn syrup got me - we don't buy that anymore. And it's 3rd on the list. Dextrose is a sugar too, plus it has other sugars in, so it's not a very healthy dressing, tasty, yes, but not good for us, for those who care what we eat.

Can't stand Olive Garden food or service. Better to go to a local restaurant to see if they sell their salad dressing. I get mine from my favorite local Greek restaurant. I get their feta, too. Much better and better for you than mass-produced high fructose laden dressing from a chain.

I happen to like it, too. It has a nice, tangy flavor, to me. I didn't know that it was available in stores now. I used to just buy it through the restaurant, if I wanted some. Smile

If you add grated Parmesan and a dash of sugar to Italian dressing (I think homemade is better than bottled) it will be similar to Olive Garden Dressing.

Great post! I love to be shamed by someone for having a tablespoon of dressing that has a few milligrams of dextrose and HFCS in it, because that tiny amount is going to overshadow the great raw vegetables I'm eating and make the entire salad worthless. Thanks.

I have never had it, is it creamy or more like a "regular" Italian dressing?

Thank you So Happy Girl. I really try to avoid high fructose corn syrup.
