French/Catalina Dressing
View as a printer-friendly text file

Recipe ingredients
Vegetable oil 1/2 cup
Sugar 1/4 to 1/3 cup (to taste)
Tomato catsup 1/3 cup
Apple Cidar vinegar 1/4 cup
Lime juice 1 tablespoon
Celery seed 1 rounded teaspoon
Parsley 1 tablespoon
Black pepper 1 scant teaspoon (coarse ground)
Oregano 1 teaspoon
Brown mustard seeds 1 teaspoon
Ground yellow mustard 1 teaspoon
Cold water if/as needed (1 to 4 tablespoons)

Mix all ingredients in blender and run on lowest speed until desired consistency is reached.

Optional/Alternative Ingredients:

Half a small onion, pureed or a teaspoon of onion powder and/or a quarter to half teaspoon of garlic powder.

The corn-syrup-free ketchup we use is very thick so the first batch of ingredients in this dressing wouldn't mix at all in my blender until I added in a little cold water.   Your results may vary (i.e. you may not need the water).

For a southwestern flavor, add a teaspoon of whole or ground comino seeds and a scant half teaspoon of Chipotle powder.

For low sugar, replace sugar with 2 packets of Stevia-based sweetener.

For sugar-free, replace the ketchup with tomato puree or paste, add one or two extra tablespoons of vinegar and use 3 packets of Stevia-based sweetener in place of the sugar.
