Very similar to store bought catalina, this sweet spicy dressing will be a favorite.

I chose this recipe when I ran out of commercial Catalina dressing because it was quick and I had all the ingredients. But it seemed awfully bland to me and I did not care for the distinct flavor of the canned soup that remained. Just a personal taste thing (thinking I might do better with a ketsup base).

I love this recipe. I used to make this in the early 70's, but I lost the recipe...and believe me I've searched for it! Thank you for giving me back my favorite homemade salad dressing recipe.

After seeing that it was made from condensed soup I was a little skeptical about this one. I tried it with 1/2 Tbsp onion powder instead of minced onion because we were out. It did have a taste similar to campbells soup but it was quickly removed with a three second squirt of Heinz Ketchup. I am curious to see if a store brand soup would be the same- they seem to be a lttle more "tomato-ey"
