Olivia Wilde is sharing the secret to her infamous salad dressing.

The 38-year-old’s “special” salad dressing is the talk of the town after her former nanny claimed that it caused some drama between her now ex-fiancé, Jason Sudeikis, and her current beau, Harry Styles.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the anonymous nanny claimed that Olivia dumped Jason – the father of her two children – mere weeks after she started filming ‘Don’t Worry Darling’ with Harry.

Olivia has vehemently denied that she started seeing Harry before ending things with Jason, calling the claims “complete horses**t”.

But her former nanny claims Jason was left heartbroken when he discovered that Olivia was allegedly cozying up to Harry after reading text messages on her Apple watch.

“'He was just out of control crying. I didn't know what to say. He was just crying and crying and saying he was going to get her back and he loved her. He was so brokenhearted – I felt for him,” the nanny told the publication.

Enter Olivia Wilde's salad dressing

The couple’s former nanny claimed that Jason became furious when he allegedly found Olivia in the kitchen making her “special dressing” for Harry.

“The night she left with her salad, Jason had chased after her, videotaping her in the house. She was saying: 'I'm scared of you, Jason, I'm scared of you'. And he said: 'If you're scared of me, why are you leaving your kids with me'?' So then, Jason went outside and lay under her car so she wouldn't leave. She got in her car to back up, he lay under her car so she wouldn't leave,” the nanny claimed.

Jason and Olivia released a joint statement slamming the nanny’s “false and scurrilous accusations”.

Nonetheless, people are curious about the special salad dressing that won Harry’s heart – allegedly.

Shortly after the nanny’s bombshell interview, Olivia took to her Instagram Story to share a picture of a page from Nora Ephron’s ‘Heartburn’ novel.

The page read: 

“I taught Mark to make the vinaigrette. Mix 2 tablespoons Grey Poupon mustard with 2 tablespoons good red wine vinegar. Then, whisking constantly with a fork, slowly add 6 tablespoons olive oil, until the vinaigrette is thick and creamy; this makes a very strong vinaigrette that’s perfect for salad greens like arugula and watercress and endive.”

Is this the salad dressing recipe that stole Harry’s heart? It is similar to a recipe Olivia shared on ‘Questlove's Potluck’ in 2020.  

She prepared a roasted salmon salad with vegetables on the show and used a recipe similar to the one on Nora’s page with a few adjustments.  

Two tablespoons of vinegar
1 tablespoon mustard
Two to four tablespoons of olive oil
Salt and garlic

And there you have it... the way to a man’s heart!
