I guess I am not a cook......but to me this is a recipe.......a way to create something very similar to what you get at the Olive Garden. AND if you can do something simple, then do it and save time. If you are a purest then by all means do everything from scratch and I would assume this recipe is not for you. I do how ever make my own croutons out of my left over french bread AND have demands from many people to make for them. BUT I also have tried canned biscuits, frozen dough and various recipes for bread sticks, so time will dictate what you do! Oh and I think this salad and dressing looks delicious!
I haven't yet tried the recipe either but see the points made by both reviewers. I also expect to see a more complete recipe (this one would include a dough recipe), but it does meet the definition. If the main ingredient is something prepared, the title should reflect that. I've been looking for a good recipe (or at least a baseline) for Buffalo sauce, but 98% of the Buffalo recipes I see say to use "your favorite Buffalo sauce") and I haven't found a good prepared one yet. Suggestions, anyone?
Have not made yet. This is for the person who left the bad review. Before you leave a comment about something, know the meaning of the word. The definition for recipe is " A set of instructions for preparing a particular dish. " Which she clearly did.
This is not a recipe. When you promise to tell me how to make something and then tell me to buy the main ingredient already prepared I can only say this is not a recipe
