For a really long while, I would go to Olive Garden and the same thing would happen. I'd love the salad and breadsticks, eat too much of them, and think my meal was just okay. Well, I finally got smart. Since the salad was the only thing that hit the spot for me, all I ordered was the salad. And since I was just ordering salad, I also included some alfredo dipping sauce for the breaksticks. And I left happy because I had eaten a satisfactory meal, and had not spent a lot of money.
