I used to work at the OG back in the day and they never made the house dressing like this!

All they do is add some more dry ingredients like garlic powder, parsley, onion powder, a little crushed red to Wishbone salad dressing and blend in with pasteurized egg beaters to make more creamy.

That's it.

Is that,trhat dressings that it usually automatically come on it in that huge bowl? Because if it is,i believe you more than this ridiculous recipe,there is no way that one had mayo in it being a clear texture and color. That has got to be the BEST salad topping/dressing ever! Between OG and Olgas,OMG what a taste of heaven! lol
