Homemade Catalina Salad Dressing

Homemade Catalina Salad Dressing – A delicious copycat version of Catalina Dressing that is so much better than store-bought, and it’s quick and easy to prepare using ingredients you already have on hand.

Homemade Catalina Salad Dressing, ketchup, vinaigrette, salad dressing

Full of flavor, light, and simple, this Copycat Catalina Salad Dressing recipe will be one that you’ll go back to again and again. It takes less than 5 minutes to make, and you know exactly what you are putting in it.

In fact, I have stopped buying salad dressings altogether, and continue to make almost all my salad dressings in my own kitchen. Checkit ⬇

One of my recent go-to meals is a Catalina Chicken and Broccoli recipe that we can’t get enough of. It’s something I came up with on a whim because I was out of Italian Salad Dressing to make my Italian Chicken and Vegetables in Foil.

Without any time to spare and hop on to Target, I prepared it with what I had, and that was my homemade version of Catalina Dressing.

  1. thank you, always open to new salad dressing, looking forward to using it on chicken too, since exhausting all of my balsamic recipes, by exhausting I just mean, I’m sick of them

  2. Judy

    Sounds wonderful but may we have the Catalina Chicken and Broccoli recipe as well? That sounds like a winner to me! Do I just sub the dressings out from the Italian Chicken and Vegetables in Foil recipe?

    I love your site, it’s been so helpful to me since I started Weight Watchers a few months ago. Keep these fantastic recipe’s and ideas coming, Thank you so much!!!!!

    1. Hi!
      Yep, I will have it up on the blog tomorrow. I prepared it in a skillet for us, but if you want to prepare it in foils (just as I did for the Italian Chicken in Foil), just replace the Italian Dressing with this Catalina dressing, and replace all the veggies with broccoli. 🙂

    Looks delicious – can’t wait to make it. Any possibility of finding out where you bought the bottle and how you made the label?

  4. Rosalee Adams

    what is the shelf life for unopened oil?
    I have some walnut oil on the shelf that has never been opened
    (dark place)
    Thanks so much
