Yeah, This dressing is yummy enough to turn a vegetable salad into a dessert. :)
This went excellent with the vegan taco salad I took to my company potluck - thanks! I subbed agave for the honey.
Due to several comments I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and the recipe was too sweet. Not wanting to waste the mixed ingredients, I added a 6 oz. can of tomato paste. The result was less of a ketchup taste and it was no longer super sweet. The color also got a little darker in color. The Kraft Catalina dressing ingredient label includes tomatoe puree and food coloring is used to get the darker red color. I wanted to try this recipe because Kraft uses GMO ingredients in their products - and there is an increasing amount of evidence that GMOs are dangerous to people and to the environment.
I dont have the Kraft Dressing to compare it with, but it is a very good dressing, and similar to my own creation. I didnt have any white vinegar and substituted some ACV only not quite the 1 cup (as I doubled the recipe). Wow it made more than I thought. It did have a different tang to it using the ACV but not in a bad way. Will make this again. Thanks for posting!
no need for store bought dressings with recipes like this
Very oily, very ketchupy, and way too much sugar. I just made it and tasted it, I hope it's ok on my salad.
I've never had Catalina dressing before,but needed some for another recipe that I was making.I thought that this was lovely,and just so simple to throw together.I will definately be making this again and again. Thank you Miss Annie.
Great Copycat of the Kraft Catalina. My husband likes Catalina on taco salad so I tried your recipe. Only processed food is the ketchup (and the Splenda I subbed for the sugar- a little less than 1 Cup) so I like making this recipe rather than buying the bottle. The recipe was too ketchuppy for us so I added more apple cider vinegar and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing.
Made this to add to Taco Salad tonight...very nice. Thanks for sharing!
