My friend Debbie is visiting for a few days, so far we went to dinner and played pool with Charlie and James. Tonight we stayed in and I made a new recipe for the Olive Garden Salad, it was really good! Found on the internet and we really enjoyed this nice big salad! I can't wait to try some soup and breadsticks with it for the winter, yes, the Zuppa Tuscana soup will go great with this!
Here is how you can make this salad for yourself:
1 package good seasonings italian dressing, make this according to the package!!
1/2 teaspoon dried italian seasoning (Shilling or McCormick)
1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon mayo
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoon vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoon water
4 tablespoon grated parmasan cheese
Whisk all this together and refrigerate for 2 or more hours, should make this in the morning for dinner that night, you want the flavors to meld.
For the salad, chop romaine and iceberg lettuce, add tomato slices, peperoncini's, red onion, black olives, croutons. Pour on dressing and toss and serve!
