Homemade: Catalina Dressing


I love making homemade salad dressings because they’re just so darn easy to make and you almost always have the ingredients on hand to make them on a whim. Which means, you don’t have to run to the grocery store to pick up a bottle of dressing when you need it.

Step 1

Place first 6 ingredients in a food processor or blender (or use a handheld blender) and process until smooth. Add the oil in a steady stream with the machine running until the mixture comes together in an emulsion. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately. Store in the refrigerator for up to one week.

*If you are using onion powder instead of chopped onion you could also shake this up in a jar with a tightly sealed lid.
