Olive Garden Salad Copy Kat

Who doesn’t love the bottomless salad at Olive Garden? It comes to your table already tossed with great ingredients and its easy to make a copy kat at home.   I use To Die For Dressing on this salad.  Olive Garden sells their own dressing for take out so try them both and decide for yourself which tastes best, the original or the Copy Kat!
