We loved this simple and delicious homemade Catalina salad dressing. Why would you buy dressing at the store when you can make an even better version at home? Just toss some simple ingredients that you probably already have on-hand into a blender. Pulse a few times, then transfer to a Mason jar. Not only do you have a fantastic tasting dressing, you have a healthier dressing for a fraction of the cost of store-bought.
For a little different flavor, substitute honey for the white sugar.
On the right is my homemade Italian dressing, which is not only great tasting, it is also just as easy to make as this Catalina dressing.
This dressing is great on my Mason jar salad.
