Homemade Catalina Dressing – recipe

My husband loves sweet salad dressings. I, on the other hand, love savory vinegar-based dressings. But, unlike many American families, we don’t have multiple bottles of salad dressing in our refrigerator so that everyone can use the dressing of their choice on their salad. Here we make a fresh salad dressing every meals, and most of the time they are vinegar and herb based.

And, since we can’t get American bottled salad dressings here, we have to make our own. My husband found this recipe the other day, and he modified it by making it with tomato paste instead of ketchup and upping the vinegar – and I bottled it :)

Enjoy it on your next salad!

1/4 teaspoon Pepper
1/3 Cup Cider Vinegar
1/4 Cup Tomato Paste
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 Onion, grated
1/2 Cup sugar
1 Cup Sunflower Seed Oil

In a bowl, mix together the pepper, vinegar, tomato paste, salt, grated onion, and sugar. Whisk in the oil until completely incorporated. Bottle, or jar, and refrigerate.

Makes about 700 mL – or 3 Cups.
