The name of this dressing differentiates it from the Yellow version, which uses mustard instead of ketchup. Catalina Dressing is also sweeter than standard French dressing, due to the addition of sugar.

1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup  ketchup
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. paprika
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Coarse salt
1/3 cup olive oil




  1. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, ketchup, sugar, paprika, and Worcestershire; season with salt.
  2. Whisking constantly, add oil in a steady stream until incorporated.

Yield: 3/4 cup
