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.

I decreased the sugar and thought this turned out just like Kraft's salad dressing. I use it on salads and in cooking.

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!

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!

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.

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 ! ! !
