Oil-Free Olive Garden Salad Premium PD Recipe

The first question I ask a PD curious friend is, “what’s your favorite salad dressing?” Then I make a matching, slimmed-down version of Protective Diet dressing for them. When I met Donna, our newest PD friend on the block, she shared a bottle of her favorite dressing from Olive Garden with me so I could smell it and examine the ingredients. When I shared my remake with her, she excitedly shouted, “Olive Garden dressing!” When Jerry overheard this, he said, “Oh YES! All-you-can-eat salad with hot breadsticks!” I am so excited to share this calorie-cutting and cost-cutting delicious PD version of Oily Garden’s iconic salad with our healthy community. You have all the health-promoting ingredients ready and waiting in your protective pantry. This dressing is just one example of over seven hundred Protective Diet recipes created to help you slim down fast and achieve optimal health while improving food quality and reducing food costs. I carefully cut the calories in this remake from 80 to 4, and sodium from 540 to 58mg per serving while still providing the taste, look, and feel of the original. Please comment below if this recipe is a healthy home run at your house. A Protective Diet keeps global food history alive and the people who enjoy it. Thank you for the endless inspiration to make plant-based living deliciously sustainable and effective at reversing and preventing disease.


  1. Okay! Made a batch putting everything away as I went. Silly girl. Got it back out and made another batch. This is delicious! And I love that it doesn’t use too much of our precious yogurt. Thank you, Julie!
