Catalina Salad Dressing


You know, I got tired of eating salad. Really. I stopped making and eating salads. It was getting boring with the same old French dressing that I usually use. The vegetables were getting boring too.

Well, I needed a boost. A salad rejuvenation of sorts. That happened at Salad Atelier when I ate the taco salad (known as The Cartel in the menu). It was so good that I googled for taco salad and I found a few videos on Youtube.

That was when I came across Catalina dressing which is used to dress taco salad. I have never heard of Catalina dressing but since this is the dressing for taco salad, I had to make it.


There are quite a few ingredients that go into this dressing and I used my immersion blender to mix everything up.


Such a convenient tool, this. It's a whole lot more convenient to use compared to a conventional blender. Easier cleaning too.

So anyway, I got my dressing all nice and emulsified.


And I had a taste. My first ever taste of Catalina dressing. Mmmmmm..... it was so good!


I poured the dressing into two bottles (my recycled taucheow bottles hee..hee...) and kept them in the fridge.

And then I made a taco salad.


Dressed the whole lot with this awesome Catalina dressing.


And got me a big bowl of something that made me fall in love with salad again.


Oh yes. My home made taco salad. So good.

If you are looking for a new dressing to spice up your salads, try this Catalina dressing. 


Catalina Dressing 
Recipe source : Adapted from Betty's Kitchen

Ingredients :
- 1 cup tomato ketchup 
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 cup white vinegar (I used distilled vinegar)
- 1 cup light olive oil
- 1 tsp sea sat
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced

Method :
1. Put all the ingredients into the beaker of your immersion blender and blend until the dressing is emulsified.
2. Or alternatively use a conventional blender or just shake in a bottle like what Betty does.
3. Transfer the dressing into a bottle or suitable container and keep in the fridge.

  1. Oh, after reading your catalina dressing, it does not sound spicy hot. Maybe a bit from the paprika and mustard but mostly would taste like tomato ketchup I guess since there is a lot of it so I will like it since I like tomato anything. Yums! you are a salad and salad dressings pro now!

  8. Wow! Your taco salad really looks delicious. Drooling over your salad. I have settled for roasted sesame dressing. Too lazy to go looking for all the ingredients.
