Homemade Franch DressingHomemade French dressing is easy to make and a great salad dressing you will make over and over again.  You can double the recipe or cut it in half.  It keeps well in the refrigerator for as long as two weeks or more.  We love this homemade French dressing on taco salads and any kind of lettuce salad.  You can use it as a marinade for chicken and steaks.  This dressing is good on hamburgers or even added into the meat before cooking the hamburgers. Why buy this in the store when you can make it at home with no harmful additives that are bad for your health.  Check out our recipes for thousand island and buttermilk ranch, too.

Ingredients for homemade French dressing:

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 cup oil (can use vegetable oil, olive oil or canola oil)

1/3 cup white granulated sugar

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup white vinegar

1 cup ketchup

Whisk together all ingredients and shake well to combine.  Makes about 1 1/2 cups.  Enjoy.

Note:  If you want a creamier dressing, add a couple tablespoons mayonnaise to the dressing.

  1. I found this just a tad sweet for my preference, but otherwise delicious, Next time I will add less sugar, and maybe thin it out just a tad. I did add 1/2 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and It’s a fabulous addition. Thanks for a great recipe.4 stars

    although this dressing sounds delicious and is certainly easy enough to prepare, i would like to know what spices i might add to make it more like the Catalina dressing? btw, i certainly do appreciate all you do to make life easier and tastier for us!

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Thank you for your kind comment, Lynda. I would leave out the garlic powder, use red wine vinegar, add a little Worcestershire and maybe some celery flakes. Catalina and French are pretty much the same unless you make the creamier French dressing. Hope this helps and you have a great Mother’s Day weekend. Happy to have you in our community.
