Olive Garden’s salad and breadsticks taste good. The big crunchy croutons, the salad dressing, and the mountain of tableside-grated parm. And then there’s the basket of warm, usually-soft breadsticks. The kicker? It’s unlimited…it just keeps coming. As a kid, this was enough to blow your mind. Now, we’re grown up and tastes have changed, but the memory of the Garden and how you always had room for just one more breadstick has not. We’re dipping into that nostalgia by showing you our thoughtful, jazzed up riff on the OG salad and breadsticks. It’s more of an elevated re-imagination than a recreation (but the dressing is a dead ringer). And good news, you guys. It’s still unlimited.
