I was served this dressing by my neighbor who told me "if I liked Olive Garden's dressing I would love this". She was right and now this is all I will make now for my husband and I with a great steak or shrimp dinner. It's great and tastes so good. I did make some changes to suit my taste, especially the garlic. YUMMY!
