A very popular salad dressing on a comeback trail..!
- 1⁄2 cup ketchup
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup red wine vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup onion, grated
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup salad oil
- salt and pepper
- Add the ketchup, sugar, vinegar, onion, paprika and Worcestershire to a food processor bowl.
- Pulse until blended.
- With the processor running, slowly add the oil.
- Check the seasonings.
- Cover and refrigerate until needed.
After making this a couple times, I discovered that it seems to get sweeter as it sets. I started processing the sugar by itself until it was very fine. Then, taking a hint from one of Marg@Cayman Design's recipes, I slightly warm the red wine vinegar in the microwave and then process it and the sugar together until the mixture appears fairly clear. I then proceed and follow the directions as written. I do always use 1 teaspoon onion powder in place of the fresh onion. It is a wonderful dressing!! A staple in our house, as we have taco salad quite often. Mini R, thank you for posting.
great recipe! I came home from the grocery store with everything for a taco salad my husband HAD to have but the dressing..so i figured I would head to the trusty internet to try out a recipe...it is fabulous I followed another readers advice and used splenda the second time. I also just used the onion powder and some garlic powder and b/c I didnt have any paprika I omitted it. I doubled everything but the oil and only put in 1/3 cup of splenda because I ran out. I think this and my taco salad will be a new potluck/ family gathering favorite!
Really good on taco salad! Super fast and easy to make. I used onion powder and just whisked it by hand. Also cut down on the sugar and it was still plenty sweet. Start out with less sugar and you can always add more.
