People started thinking about what the recipe might be and searched the internet for clues.
Olivia Wilde was happy to share and revealed her secrets on Instagram.
On Monday, The Daily Mail ran a tabloid article about the deteriorating relationship between Sudeikis and Wilde.
Told from the perspective of a former nanny for their children, one of the most compelling pieces of the story involved a salad.
According to the nanny, Olivia Wilde made a salad for Harry Styles with a special sauce.
Sudeikis, drunk and heartbroken, tried to stop her from delivering the meal.

The story was supposed to become a hot topic for gossip.
Instead, however, the special sauce the actor & director made became an obsession with people.
Many took to social media to discuss the salad dressing and asked Wilde to post the recipe.
Sweetgreen, a salad chain, jokingly tried to take credit for the dressing.
The chain posted a photo on Instagram of Wilde holding her restaurant bag.
“The salad dressing origin story,” they wrote.
People’s obsession with salad dressing led to the idea that the actress previously shared the dressing recipe with Food Network.

Olivia Wilde listened to the Internet and decided to satisfy everyone’s curiosity.
Late Tuesday, Wilde posted a photo on her Instagram Stories, giving people the answer they were looking for.
The photo appeared to be a page from “Heartburn,” Nora Ephron’s 1983 autobiographical novel.
In the lower part of the photo, the passage gave instructions on the salad that Ephron was preparing.
“Mix 2 tablespoons Grey Poupon mustard with 2 tablespoons good red wine vinegar,” the page reads.
“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.”
With the salad dressing recipe finally released to the world, people will see what the hype was all about.
