Creamy salad dressing

I can’t remember where I found this one, but it was advertised as a copycat recipe for Olive Garden’s salad dressing; it’s not. However, it is quite good nevertheless – it’s almost a merging of Ranch-style and Italian-style dressings.

If you know the origin of this recipe, please comment or email me so I can give them credit.

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • pinch of sugar
  • 2 tbsp corn syrup

  • sprinkle of pepper
  • 2 (10 oz) cans cream-style corn
  • 1/2 cup whole kernel corn (frozen, canned, or fresh)
  • chopped green onions or fresh chives
