If you’re a fan of Olive Garden’s Signature Italian salad dressing and you have an ALDI nearby, be on the lookout for ALDI’s version of this popular salad dressing!
Although ALDI does sell Olive Garden’s dressing for $2.99, we also spotted this Tuscan Garden “Restaurant Style” Italian Dressing in a strikingly similar bottle for just $1.69 – that’s over a 40% savings!
The only difference between these two salad dressings appeared to be the label (and the price, of course!), so we had to give the Tuscan Garden Italian dressing a try to see how close it would come to Olive Garden’s original version.
The look and pour of these two dressings were nearly identical and the taste of the Tuscan Garden dressing was spot-on as well. Here’s what Hip2Save team member, Jami, thought:
My daughter and I tried both and they were very similar. We both noticed a bit more acidity or tartness in the Olive Garden version, but besides that, they have pretty close to the same flavor profiles.
If you enjoy the flavor of Olive Garden’s Signature Italian Dressing and are looking for a more economical option, give ALDI’s Tuscan Garden Italian dressing a try!
ALDI is also selling Asian Sesame and Mediterranean salad dressings under the Tuscan Garden label, and after sampling their Italian dressing, we’re excited to try these flavors as well!

I just picked up some the other day! I love that the Italian dressing is low carb too!!
You guys are the best! This is my favorite dressing! Can’t wait to pick it up next time I am at Aldi!
Yay! Thanks for the sweet comment, Amy! 💖
I wish I could call the store, sometimes I am looking for certain products and when I get to the store, I find my product is not there.
I bought a bottle of the Aldi dressing last month. It’s pretty good. The ingredients are a little different than the Olive Garden dressing but the taste is very close.
Thanks so much for the honest review, L! I haven’t tried the ALDI version yet!
Does the Aldi dressing contain high fructose corn syrup? That is why I won’t buy the Olive Garden one because my family and I keep hfcs out of our groceries.
Same question- does it contain HFCS?
No corn syrup on the ingredient list 👍
Jen is right. The Aldi brand dressing doesn’t have HFCS on the ingredient list. The Olive Garden bottle does.
Do they also sell knock off bread sticks??? I would never have to step into olive garden again.
Love it when my family and I eat salad and breadsticks and we get full off of that alone. Haha
LOL! We’ll have to keep a lookout for bread sticks too!
I found breadstick almost identical to Olive Garden at Walmart in the bread isle in the spring, but now they no longer carry them. My kids loved them 🙁
Does anyone know if they have the Caesar dressing? Thanks.
Good question, Jen! We’ll have to keep an eye out for that one too!
Do you know of any brand that taste just like the caesar salad dressing from Outback steakhouse? Love that dressing!
I’ve liked that one too, Von! I haven’t seen one like it, but we’ll be sure to keep a lookout!
Could someone please tell me if this contains any kind of peppers or tomatoes? I’m trying to find a good Italian dressing that doesn’t have these ingredients because I have an intolerance to them.
Bought some Tuscan Garden Italian Dressing and Seasoning Mix at Aldi’s and the sealed package was empty. Very disappointed!
I bought this salad dressing and it had no foil seal after I opened the cap. Is this normal?
Crystal, mine too..
Not sure if it’s safe this way? Did you ever fine out?

I thought this dressing was way too salty.
I agree. It completely ruined the Olive Garden chicken recipe. It was so salty that it was inedible. I’ll stick to the original next time.
Where is it made?
This dressing is great, but the blue lid Mediterranean is my favorite. However, they appear to not be packaged with the other two. Seriously. Does anyone know what’s going on with production/shipment? Our local employees don’t know.
My family loves your tuscan gardens dressing ,Asian sesamein particular.im having a hard time finding it lately .please make it more available .
I saw this dressing and decided to give it a try. Made a spiral macaroni with LOTS of fresh veggies and added babay shrimp.I let it marinate for a day. AWESOME. Will go buy more bottles next shopping trip.
