Olive Garden Style Salad

Last night we had planned on feeding the sister missionaries for our church . It turns out that one of them had the flu so I delivered dinner to them. We made  Pasta e Fagioli Soup, breadsticks, and this wonderful Copy cat salad recipe. The dressing is creamier than the original Olive Garden dressing but it doesn't dissapoint. Turn your kitchen into the "Olive Garden " tonight :) The whole family loved this.
