Here’s another one from the new restaurant recipe cookbook. I was a little leery of this one, since we HATE Carrabba’s. But I don’t think I had evil thoughts about their salad, so I decided to give this one a try. As you can see by the recipe, it’s really easy to make and doesn’t include alot of ingredients. In the notes for it, they say that if you don’t have buttermilk that regular milk is fine. I used Silk plain soymilk instead and it tasted great. This is a really good creamy dressing. It’s one of those dressings where you want to eat it with a spoon. 2 Thumbs up. We had a salad with this dressing, along with a Spicy black bean burger, cole slaw, and potato pancakes.
**Edited 7/8/13: I gave Carrabba’s another chance and now we actually really like them! I especially like their fried zucchini appetizer and their pizza!
