Just ate this a maggianos on we'd. Nite. Made this tonight and used turkey bacon instead of proscitto. It was pretty close to the real deal.

I make this up and store it in my fridge to use on all my salads. I reduce the oil just a bit and use a light olive instead of the GMO corn or canola. I also use stevia instead of sugar so I tweak the amounts a little.

I later saw that the "change servings" option did allow to go down to 1 quart, thanks CDKitchen!

I just recently had the actual Maggiano's salad, and I must say that this was close but not quite there. There is something missing, a secret ingredient perhaps? Or the ratios are a tad off. But a great substitute by any means.

The "change servings" option is not working, just FYI. Can this be fixed?

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
Because it's entered as 2 quarts, you can only modify it in amounts of quarts. For example, if you put "1" in the box it will change the amounts to make 1 quart. You can put decimal amounts in, for example if you want .5 quarts, just put .5 in (which would yield 1 cup).

I used to work for Maggianos - this recipe is spot on - except you didn't say that it MUST set for 3 hours before use - that is why we made it so early in the morning.

I have the original restauramt-quantity recipe for Maggiano's House Dressing. This recipe is 'very close'. BTW there is not currently, and has never has been Flour in the ingredients. Coleman's Dry Mustard IS Mustard FLOUR, and is a critical ingredient in this Dressing.

My reading of the lable was incorrect There is no flour in it. It is MUSTARD FLOUR; Coleman's is a mustard flour.

Close, but not close enough. Maggaiano's contains flour (per Lable) The flour is a thickening agent. How do you introduce it into the dressing? As a rue or desolved in water and simmered? Or other?
