3/4 c. salad oil
1/4 c. vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
Dash ground pepper
1/2 c. honey
1/2 tsp. celery seed

Combine salad oil, vinegar, salt, sugar, paprika, dry mustard, pepper, honey and celery seed in a glass jar with a tight fitting cover. Blend by shaking well. Chill at least 1 hour or more.

I just made one a couple days ago.

Basically it's:

3 TBS blood orange vinegar (balsamic works too but blood orange vinegar puts this over the top!)
1 TBS fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup evoo
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
drizzle (1/2 tsp or so) honey
1/2 tsp. finely chopped garlic
S&P to taste

My favorite way to serve this is with baby romaine, goat cheese, dried cranberries, and red onion.

Yes, you are right, this is very refreshing!

Another favorite with baby greens, strawberries, blueberries, red onion, goat cheese, and at the VERY end right before serving, some mint - use this for a dressing:

1/2 cup Chardonnay wine (DO NOT USE COOKING WINE)
1/3 cup white wine vinegar or some other mild vinegar like Champagne
2 TBS honey or more if needed - sometimes it takes 3 TBS depending on the honey
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground black or white pepper
1 cup light-flavored olive oil (you want the wine to shine through here)

I have a Sweet Ribs recipe that calls for Catalina dressing which I'm not familiar with. Is the main ingredient in this dressing, ketchup/tomato sauce? I don't buy salad dressing anymore since I make them myself. Please help so I can find a substitute for this Catalina dressing in the recipe. Thanks!
