Could someone please advise me what Catalina salad dressing is? Is there something equivalent in Australia?
Vivienne from Australia
Catalina dressing is similar to French dressing but tangier. This website has a recipe for Catalina dressing:
It's a kind of tomatoey french, without the cream or whatever that makes regular french dressing creamy. I would look at the ingredients, then look at french dressing recipes. Then try out what would sound good, experiment. I often adjust recipes to get the taste I want.
The website with the "clone" recipe for Catalina Dressing is:
Just type in Catalina Dressing at the search site, and you will be able to make your own down under. All ingredients are simple and you probably have them in stock already. Good luck
Catalina Dressing is a type of French dressing. A similar tasting dressing is made by Dorothy Lynch. (It is a little sweeter, but I like it better.) They have a web site (DorothyLynch.com) that you can order the dressing.
Do you not have Kraft Brand Salad dressings in Australia. Similar to French but much better.

Catalan is a region of SPAIN (Barcelona is part of this)
the secret AUTHENTIC ingredients are:
SMOKED paprika (!)
Aged wine vinegar (or good balsamic works too)
then oil salt and pepper
mix together these simple ingredients and you will truly understand Kraft's attempt to capture these simple pure flavors
I really hope people read this message, try it and learn that there IS NO CATSUP in true Catalan flavours
I think Catalina Dressing is named after Catalina, CA in the US, not Catalan.
