Homemade Catalina Salad Dressing

I love the Catalina dressing, but when it went from a 24 oz bottle to a 16 oz bottle, with a price increase, I stopped buying it. I found a recipes on the web for a copy cat and tweaked it a little to suit my needs. The first time I served it to my husband, I wondered if he would like it as well. I didn't have to wonder long, he loves it.

1 cup of Splenda? That's equal to 1 cup of sugar in sweetness, which means about half of the ingredients by volume is devoted to sweetness. Don't forget that the catsup is already full of sugar (corn syrup) and very sweet.


If the Splenda is not an error, wouldn't this recipe be too sweet for most taste?

Catalina is a very sweet dressing and is full of sugar. So I don't believe the 1 cup of Splenda is a mistake. I haven't been eating this dressing since being diagnosed with Diabetes. You can buy ketchup without corn syrup or you can make your ketchup too! I miss this and plan to make it! Thanks!

Can you use regular sugar? The splenda and the other ones hurt my stomach.
