Almost Famous Garden Salad - Olive Garden Style

I have a subscription to the new TV Food Network Magazine and I can't tell you how much I love it. My favorite section of the magazine is the Almost Famous section. In the last issue they gave a recipe for soft pretzels that taste just like the ones you buy in the shopping mall. Imagine my surprise when I saw the most recent issue has the recipe for Olive Garden's salad and breadsticks!! I know my whole family (especially the women) love going to Olive Garden just for the salad and breadsticks alone. I knew instantly that I wanted to make this for my mom and mother-in-law for Mother's Day. I doubled the recipe and took a salad to each of them yesterday. We all LOVED this salad. It was the perfect lunch for us this year as we are all craving fresh and light salad dishes. Even the men enjoyed it!! I am really urging everyone to try this one. It's as simple as making a quick dressing in a blender and tossing it with some prewashed salad mix.


  1. Ha ha - now I know why I like the salad so much - I love Miracle Whip, it's so sweet!

    Thanks for the link!

  2. I loooooove this magazine, too! I pretty much want to make everything in it, though :/
