Mix all dressing ingredients in a blender or processor until well blended. Toss salad ingredients and top with dressing.

There are two different "Olive Garden" salad dressing recipes I found to be floating all over the internet. I chose to try the one that did not call for raw egg. The family didn't think it tasted too much like Olive Garden's, but it was very good and they ate the whole bowl very quickly!
