This is really good. I am sure I will be makeing it all the time. I didn't have any celery seed, but probably won't ever use that anyway. I thought it might be a little too sweet, but hubby said it was just right. Thanks for a great recipe.
just tried this dressing out today, n everyone really liked it! i did cut down on the sugar,infact used a Tb of Splenda instead. great dressing!!
I made this as a component of Chicken Wings... Hot Dawgie Style because I didn't want all that sugar that bottled Catalina dressing contains. (I substituted artificial sweetener.) This is really an excellent clone to the store bought stuff. Now I don't have to give up Catalina dressing due to hubby's diabetes. Yay! Actually, there is still a fair bit of sugar in this due to the ketchup, but much less with that one ingredient change. I really enjoyed this when I gave it a taste before use in the other recipe. I'll certainly be making this again for a salad in the future.
Very very good! I used Splenda as I live with a diabetic and he was thrilled to have this sweet dressing without having to worry about the sugar....thanks.
This was soooo easy, and tasty. My son loves Catalina dressing and cucumbers for a snack, I made this he gives this a huge thumbs up! I used cider vinegar, 1/2 cup of sugar in the raw, and only 1/2 of the oil to try to make it a little less caloric. Will try to use Stevia next time, as I am trying to stay away from refined sugars.
This is a great recipe. I substituted 1 tsp onion powder for the grated onion. I used Bragg's unfiltered apple cider vinegar, Whey-Low (an all natural sugar replacement) and the ketchup I used was already sweetened with Agave Nectar. So no refined sugar went into my dressing. Tasted fantastic!
Great taste! I'll never buy store bought again!
I love this dressing! I subsituted Splenda for the sugar and it was perfect!
I've never been much of a Catalina salad dressing consumer, but we had a guest the other night and I knew that's all he likes, so I tried this one. Based on others' reviews I used less sugar (3/4 cup) and red wine vinegar. He said, "Wow, this is better than the real thing." I halved the recipe, but still there was some remaining. We finished it up last night and decided it's much better than we had ever given it credit for. Thanks for posting Miss Annie:)
Yeah, This dressing is yummy enough to turn a vegetable salad into a dessert. :)
