I don't like it. I'm not sure if we're going to use it or throw it out.

This is close. A little too sweet. Cut the sugar down. I ended up adding more of the other ingredients to balance it out.
Molly June 21, 2013 REVIEW:
I decreased the sugar and thought this turned out just like Kraft's salad dressing. I use it on salads and in cooking.
anonymous April 11, 2012 REVIEW:
This was excellent. Followed the directions from another reviewer and halved the salt, sugar and oil and added 1/2 c. water. Heated the water, vinegar & sugar until sugar dissolves. Also, added minced garlic and left out celery seed. This recipe will be a keeper!

Excellent, tastes just like Kraft (commercial) Catalina dressing, nice & thick. Tastes best on 2nd day. Keeps well.

Following the advice of other reviewers, I halved the sugar and oil, added garlic and pepper, and also added a dash of Asian red pepper sauce. It tastes just like it!
Guest Foodie July 28, 2010 REVIEW:
I make this with half the sugar,half the salt, half the oil (add water instead) and I boil the sugar, vinegar and water until the sugar dissolves, then add the oil, the grated onion and the dry ingredients. Finally, I add a little garlic, dried or minced, because it's on the ingredients on the Kraft Catalina bottle. If you taste test without the garlic against the real thing, you'll see what I mean.

FANTASTIC! always was my Fav dressing from store. Now, never will buy again! EASY, FAST, GREAT- my 4 children devoured it! - tho i did cut the sugar in half- INSTEAD of Catsup, I put 1/3 cp tomato canned sauce-omit the catsup & u wont have to have the corn syrup thats always snuck into most foods & specifically that catsup.-mommy of 4 San Diego- & she will use again-never waste $ on it again!

WOW! My first try at making salad dressing, can't believe how fast and easy it was. Using it for cooking a recipe and the beautiful,aromatic scent of Catalina dressing fills the air.
In an effort to eradicate store bought dressings and all there nasty chemicals(even propylene glycol!)I am now a convert and will always be!
Thank you,thank you,thank you ! ! !

Very good! I was pleasantly surprised by the taste and consistency of this dressing. It was very close to the original (sweet and tangy), but the celery seed made it taste a bit weird.
I might suggest adding some cayenne and/or black pepper if you like your Catalina a bit spicy.
homey September 9, 2009 REVIEW:
too sweet.........if I make it again I will decrease the sugar and only use a 1/2 cup.
hoorayformom September 12, 2008 REVIEW:
This was SO fast and easy! My lil salad-devouring 9 year old says it is DELISH, and shes the pickiest dressing kid on the face of the earth so it must be true!
We don't currently own a blender, but I just dumped everything into a smallish bowl that has a lid and whisked the tar out of it...it'll go right into the fridge and be tasty goodness!
Gino July 11, 2008 REVIEW:
It was good and a lifesaver as I didn't realize I was out of dressing. Thanks
It's ok to cheat a little by using convenience foods in your cooking. Refrigerated crescent roll dough comes in very handy in recipes like cheddar spinach appetizer squares, mini pepperoni rolls, or simple bear claws.
