Genious! What a great way to perk up regular 'ol store bought dressing! Who knew that just a couple of ingredients you have on hand could do so much for a bottle of dressing. I used Kraft light Italian dressing and while it's not Olive Garden overall it was very good. Read More

A great simple idea to enhance the flavour of store-bought italian dressing. I should have thought of this myself long ago. Read More

Not quite as good as Olive Garden but on the right track. I used Newman's Olive Oil and Vinegar dressing and added 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper and 1 Tbsp. parmesan cheese. This made it a little better. But it was adding an extra 1/4 cup white wine vinegar that give it that extra zip much more like Olive Garden! Read More

It was great!! I used Ken's Light Olive Oil Vinagrette. I actually even poured a little more oil out of that. It is great to marinate chicken with. Read More

A nice way to dress up bottled dressing but for us it was a little too sweet. I used Newman's dressing. Next time I'll cut back on the sugar and maybe add a little fresh grated Parmesan cheese. Read More

I made this last night for something different. My husband couldn't get enough. I enjoyed it. It was very flavorful. I personally thought it was a tad too sweet and next time I will cut down on the sugar. I liked how easy it was to change up a dressing I already had. Read More
