We love the big ol salads that you get at Olive Garden! They’re perfect with meals and we love making this Copycat Olive Garden Salad at home!
I think Olive Garden’s Salad is one of my absolute favorite restaurant salads! They’re huge, full of flavor and never-ending (when you’re there anyways haha)
However, we don’t go out to eat a lot anymore so I’ve been making those famous salads at home. Olive Garden sells their dressing at the grocery store now so it is easy to get that famous salad at home now.

Which Brands Did I Use For This Copycat Olive Garden Salad?
Sometimes when it comes to Semihomemade recipe that use packaged foods to create meals, the brands of items can make or break a dish. I don’t think this ALWAYS happens but I do know that not all packaged items are created equally.
Well here is where I would normally add all of my ingredients and tell you what brands I used, but seeing as how 99% of the ingredients in this salad are produce, there aren’t really any brands to tell you about.
The only one I can advise on is the bottled “Olive Garden Signature Italian Salad Dressing”. It’s a lovely dressing and perfect for this salad.
