Olivia Wilde is quite the “Book Intelligence” even when it comes to making dinner.

The “Don’t Worry Darling” director shared his recipe for the famous “special salad dressing” that his ex-nanny claims caused an epic feud with ex-Jason Sudeikis.

Sharing a photo from Nora Ephron’s book “Heartburn,” the recipe says, “Mix 2 tablespoons of Gray Poupon with 2 tablespoons of good red wine vinegar.

“Then whisk constantly with a fork, gradually add 6 tablespoons of olive oil, until the salad dressing thickens and becomes creamy; this makes a very strong vinaigrette that’s perfect for salad greens like arugula, watercress, and chicory.”

The recipe is nearly identical to the one Wilde, 38, recently shared with Food Network, which allegedly caused the “Ted Lasso” star to throw himself under Wilde’s car.

In the same passage shared on his Instagram Story, Wilde hinted that he was trying to move on from his relationship with Sudeikis and the drama that followed.

“Because if I tell the story, I can make you laugh, and I’d rather you laugh at me than feel sorry for me. Because if I tell the story, it won’t hurt that much. Because if I tell the story, I can move on.”

“Heartburn” is based on Ephron’s marriage to and divorce from her second husband, Carl Bernstein, after an affair with Margaret Jay, the daughter of former British prime minister James Callaghan.

Wilde’s post came just after her former nanny spoke to the Daily Mail about the death of her relationship with Sudeikis. According to the former couple’s nanny, Sudeikis was enraged when the director tried to leave their California home to visit her now-boyfriend, Harry Styles, with a salad and his “special dressing.”

“The night she left with her salad, Jason chased after her by videotaping her at home,” the woman, who asked not to be named, told the Daily Mail in a report published on Monday. “I’m afraid of you, Jason, I’m afraid of you,” she was saying. And he said: ‘If you’re afraid of me, why do you leave your children to me?’

“Then Jason went out and lay under his car so he wouldn’t go. He got in his car to go back, he slept under it so he wouldn’t go.”

According to the nanny, the desperation of the “Terrible Bosses” star was enough to force Wilde back to their home.

“She said she did it on purpose so she would be late to see Harry,” said the nanny. Jason told me, ‘He made this salad himself and made his special dressing, and he’s leaving for dinner with his salad. [Harry].’”

Following Nanny’s allegations, she and the Emmy-winning actress vehemently denied her “false and obscene accusations.”

The former couple, who share their 8-year-old son Otis and 6-year-old daughter Daisy, said: “As parents, it’s incredibly sad to learn that a former nanny of our two young children would choose to make such false and heinous accusations against us.” He told Page Six on Monday.

“His 18-month campaign to harass us, our loved ones, close friends and colleagues has reached its unfortunate climax. Now we will continue to focus on raising and protecting our children in the hope that he will choose to leave our family alone.”
