WOW with a few changes this recipie was the best I have ever tasted!!! so fresh and creamy delish! First of all I put used 1/2 cup of sugar not a whole cup, and I used olive oil instead of veggie oil. I put all ing. (except the olive oil) into the food processor on high until well blended. I then turned the the processor down to low and slowly in a steady stream poured in the olive oil until blended and slightly thick. all I can say is WOW my whole family raved about this salad dressing. It is truly worth a try.



GREAT salad dressing. My new favorite. Catalina dressing with a zip. I only used 1/2 of a medium onion and it was perfect.



Absolutely Delicious! I did change the method of preparation, and added about 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. I put all of the ingredients except the oil into a blender. Pulsed several times to incorporate. I then blended on high speed, and slowly added the vegetable oil in order to completely emulsify so that the oil wouldn't separate upon sitting in the frig., and poured the mixture into a quart mason jar, covered, and sealed. I am looking forward to my LARGE salad this evening with this wonderful, tasty, dressing. THANKS Mary Ann for sharing this with all of us--reminds me of the dressing I ate as a child some 65 years ago.
