Homemade Catalina Dressing

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

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. Hi!
      Always start with a small amount, then taste, and add more if needed. So, try 1/8 teaspoon to start with, then adjust to your taste.

    I found this recipe intriguing, despite the abundance of meaningless advertising between each paragraph. One such ad promised that I could download a game, in the format of a puzzle app, and then play, meet people from around the world, engage in meaningful conversations, and ultimately have…

    1. I have to make a buck somehow, Todd. Takes a lot of time, resources, and money to create these recipes. But, you can always just skip ALL the “meaningless advertising” by clicking on the “JUMP TO RECIPE” button at the very top of the post, located right under the title of the recipe.
      P.S. You’re welcome for the FREE recipes.

      1. Haters gonna hate. Shake it off. Your site and recipes are fabulous and the low carb ones are helping me lose weight so I can feel confident enough to meet people through your ads and have engaging adventures. 😘

  2. This recipe says there are 16 servings and the Nutritional Information says that a serving is 2 tablespoons, for 36 calories. Based on the ingredients, this is not possible. The ingredients don’t even add up to 1 full cup, which would be 16 tablespoons. If there are 16 2-tablespoon servings in this recipe, that’s 32 tablespoons. Do the math! So what exactly is the nutritional value and serving size of this recipe?

    Any suggestions for a substitute for the Worcestershire sauce? Or would it still be just as good if left out.
