Here's How Many People Olive Garden's Jumbo Salad Actually Serves
By Betsy Parks
Olive Garden is always an option for those eating dinner with a large group. Their Jumbo Salad feeds about six people and comes with 12 breadsticks for $20 to $25.
The Jumbo Salad on the Family Style Meals menu has an iceberg and Italian lettuce mix, black olives, plum tomatoes, thinly sliced red onions, pepperoncini, and seasoned croutons.
Topped with grated Romano cheese and their in-house creamy Italian dressing, it's actually cheaper to buy the salad rather than make a copycat at home.
According to Olive Garden's website, a single portion of salad is five ounces, and the Jumbo Salad is about 30 ounces. Keep this in mind if you think your guests will need more.
