Olive Garden Salad Dressing Ingredients

  • Lettuce

  • Large Black olives
  • Red onions
  • Pepperoncinis (These are jarred and are found in the same section as the pickles/olives)
  • Croutons (You can actually purchase Olive Garden’s Croutons
  • Parmesan cheese

Best Olive Oil for Salad Dressing

-Make sure you use high quality extra virgin olive oil when making this recipe. In turn, it’ll yield a high quality salad dressing and will ensure that the olive oil remains in liquid form when refrigerated.

Storing Leftover Salad

  • Prepared salad should be refrigerated as soon as possible in an airtight container, free from as much moisture as possible.
  • Salad can’t be frozen, lettuce that has been frozen or even chilled at too low of a temperature ruins it’s consistency and freshness. Once that’s happened, it can’t be recovered.
  • Refrigerated salad lasts anywhere from 1-3 days, it’s only as good until the least-fresh ingredient in the salad begins to go bad.
