Recipe by SilentCricket

I have lived overseas for over 15 years and Catalina French dressing has not always been available at the local market...So, I used this yummy homemade recipe full of flavor instead!

Love this stuff. It's much better than french dressing from a bottle. The first time I made it, I had no trouble at all, but this time, for some reason it just would NOT come together and emulsify. The only thing I did differently was use grapeseed oil instead of canola. The dressing wasn't as smooth as it should be, and when I turned off the blender the oil would slowly separate out. I added 1/4 tsp of dry ground mustard, and when I gave it another buzz, the dressing instantly turned smooth and creamy. And it tastes great. (The mustard trick is a general-purpose salad dressing hack!)
