Olivia Wilde satisfies fan cravings by sharing her salad dressing recipe


Actress and director Olivia Wilde seems to have a good sense of humor.

After a tabloid article on Monday referenced a special salad dressing made by Wilde, people have been abuzz online searching for the recipe.

Salad chain Sweetgreen even jokingly tried to claim the dressing, with an Instagram post of a photo of Wilde holding her diner bag, with the caption “the origin story of dressing.”

Then late Tuesday, Wilde reportedly amused herself by posting a photo to her Instagram Stories that appeared to be a page from Nora Ephron’s 1983 autobiographical novel, “Heartburn.”

“Mix 2 tablespoons of Gray Poupon mustard with 2 tablespoons of good red wine vinegar,” reads the passage described by Wilde. “Then, whisking constantly with a fork, slowly add 6 tablespoons of olive oil, until the dressing is thick and creamy; this gives a very strong vinaigrette that is perfect for green salads such as arugula, watercress and endive.

Wilde did not comment on his post.

Salad Dressing Fever includes a theory that Wilde shared the salad dressing recipe with the Food Network some time ago. And whatever the ingredients, it is Wilde who joins the ranks of the stars whose recipes we love.
