Posted at 21:00h in All Recipes, Salads & Dressings 10 Comments
- 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
- 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
- 1/4 Cup Vinegar (white)
- 1 Tsp Sugar
- 1/2 Tsp Salt
- 1/4 Tsp Dry Mustard Powder
- 1/4 Tsp Onion Powder
- 1/4 Tsp Garlic Powder
- 1/4 Tsp Paprika (I prefer the smoke paprika)
- 1/4 Tsp Oregano (dried) or 1 Tsp fresh
- 1/4 Tsp Thyme (dried) or 1 Tsp fresh
- Combine all ingredients in a salad dressing shaker or bottle (with lid) and mix well until all blended
- Refrigerate for 4 hours prior to using to allow the flavours to blend together.
- Serve over prepared lettuce (I like the Iceberg for this one).

I don’t want to be a hater, but this just tasted like an oily mess.

Sorry you had this experience. This is the recipe for the dressing. There would be enough here for about 3 salads. It does keep for about 10 days refrigerated ..

This recipe is an absloute favorite at my house. We find it tastes even better than Eastside’s. Thank you for sharing

Where do I get those pepper on ink/pecorino peppers similar to east sides. I have bought some in grocery stores but wayyyy hotter than east side’s

Hi Martin, I’ve always used Unico brand Peperoncini Peppers. I’ll post a picture on the recipe post of the bottle / brand.

I made this for my kids and they used to work there. They loved it!

This week we went to East Side Mario’s on Upper James, Hamilton. Ontario.
We have always loved the salad at this chain of restaurants but the salad we had was a great disappointment. The dressing tasted dramatically different and more like over the counter bottled dressing. We will not give it a good rating at all and will probably not go there again.
