Catalina dressing, what's in it?

I made Catalina Chicken the other day and loved it!

I think it was from some very nice Ladies on this list.

Make plenty of suace! It is sort of sweet/ sour and you need enough sauce to cover your rice!

But I am such a cheepskate, I would like to make my own Catalina Dressing.. what do y'all think is in it?

I read once that 1000 island dresseng is 1/2 mayo and 1/2 ketchup.

Thanks Eric Austin Tx.

1 teaspoon paprika
1⁄2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Add all to blender or using a stick blender, buzz till mixed well. Makes 3 cups. Refrigerate.


Oh, and 1000 Island also has pickle relish, hence the islands.

I asked my knowledgeable friend, Google, for a "catalina dressing recipe" and this one came up, among others. But the recipe gives you the basic idea, which seems to be what PF posted.

I haven't had catalina dressing in years. May just have to get some lettuce and make some this week.

Heh! That's the one I found when I started looking for homemade dressings. Had to play with it to get what I wanted.

It sounded right to me and the photo looked like the catalina I remembered having as I was growing up. I also noted that the remarks were favorable, too.

I love Catalina and salsa on taco salad. I have made the one Katie linked to, it was decent, though mine solidified in the fridge. I ended up with a big chunk of Catalina

you don't eat all three cups at once. A 2 tablespoon serving is minimal sugar. One of the comments said they used Splenda and it was good. Since I can't use artificial sweeteners...I've gotten good at finding the exact carb impact of sugar in recipes.

It just seems to me like the ketchup alone would add enough sweetness, but the sugar would take it over the top cloying. I'm a vinaigrette or blue cheese guy. I guess I just don't care for salad dressings that taste like dessert.
