This is supposed to be a copycat verison.

Olive Garden Salad Dressing
1 1/2 c bottled Italian dressing
2 tb grated Parmesan cheese
2 tb granulated sugar
1 large raw egg
1/4 c olive oil

1.Blend all except oil in blender on high speed 1/2 minute or until smooth. 2.Pour this mixture into the top of a double boiler and add the oil. Stir gently with a whisk over gently boiling water until it begins to thicken and egg is completely cooked. Chill several hours or overnight before using.

2 Tbls. dry, unflavored pectin
2 Tbls. egg - beaten
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. dried parsley
1 pinch dried oregano

looks like there are a bunch out there... I think I am going to have to go back for a taste test!

Olive Garden Salad Dressing

1/2 C. Mayonnaise
1/3 C. White Vinegar
1 tsp. Vegetable Oil
2 Tbsp. Corn Syrup
2 Tbsp. Parmesan Cheese
2 Tbsp. Romano Cheese
1/4 tsp. Garlic Salt - or one clove garlic minced
1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp. Parsley Flakes
1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
Sugar (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a blender until well mixed. If this is a little to
tart for your own personal tastes please add a little extra sugar.

Good Luck!

Wow! I am so glad to have found this thread. I've asked around for the recipe (or at least a good copy) of the Olive Garden salad dressing for months and have come up empty. Finally, I've hit the jackpot! Big, big thanks! :D

Wow....what a great recipe! I used the one that Kansasgirl posted. I haven't actually put it on the salad yet (waiting for it to chill for dinner tonight)...but I taste tested it and it tastes like it's going to be great! Plus, it's not that difficult to make! Thanks for the recipe.
