Rip-Off of Da Guido's Clear Salad Dressing

Posted by Rachel R. Vanderveen on Thursday, March 28th, 2013 at 10:29am.

I’ve come up with another recipe that I just can’t keep to myself. The recipe comes from this restaurant in Calgary called Da Guido. They have the most amazing house salad dressing. Every time I go there, I order that salad and my eyes just roll back in my head as I savour the flavour.

So last year my very talented chef friend, Lindsay, was in town, and I convinced her to come with me to Da Guidos so she could help me figure out what was in it using her super-human chef palette. She did indeed give me some helpful directions on what ingredients to try, and I have spent the last year testing and re-testing different combinations, and I think I have finally come very close to what the recipe may actually be. So without further delay, here it is.



Rip Off of Da Guido’s Clear Vinaigrette

Coats a salad for one or two


¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 TBS Red Wine Vinegar

1 TSP Lemon Juice

¼ TSP Salt

¼ TSP Pepper


Mix ingredients together and serve. It’s simple, and that’s what makes it to die for! Of Course, to get the real deal and try a sald that might make you lose consciousness head to Da Guido's in Calgary!

As always, if you try this recipe, please comment here and let me know how it went! What worked and what didn't. Thanks so much!
