This was sooo goood. I have several recipe for a French dressing, but that way I can have different variations for different moods. I will be making this again. Thank you so much for the recipe.

Liked this dressing, but it was just a little too sweet for us. Next time, I will start with half of the sugar, and add more if necessary. I wanted to be sure that I didn't have pieces (even small ones) of garlic and onion in my dressing, so I pureed everything EXCEPT the oil in the food processor, and then streamed in the oil through the top of the processor while it was running. Ended up with perfectly smooth dressing with a good consistency.

very good. i used canola oil and decreased the recipe. i never made french dressing before because i didnt realize you could make it w/ everyday ingredients.

I used canola oil and cider vinegar, because I had those on-hand. I don't think those substitutions altered the flavor drastically. I did cut the sugar in half, and it was still very sweet, so I would recommend starting out with less sugar and adding to taste. I also omitted the salt because there is a lot of sodium in the ketchup, and I honestly didn't miss the added salt in the final result. This info may be useful for people on restricted sodium diets, like myself. This recipe has made me a convert from buying bottled French dressing.

This is tangy and tastes divine. I used garlic powder and onion powder in lieu of fresh; this way it keeps for several weeks in the fridge.

This is a tasty dressing. I started out adding less sugar than the recipe called for, but after tasting, added the rest. I grated the onion and garlic to avoid having chunks in the dressing. This is nice and tangy and slightly sweet, just like a good French dressing should be.

I recently decided to start making ALL salad dressings from scratch, and boy am I glad I did! This dressing is awesome! It has a little kick to it, and is SO good on cold, crisp greens. Everyone raved about this dressing!

Made this as written. HOWEVER: dang but it's sweet! It reminds me of what used to be called Catalina French dressing. I only made half the recipe and am glad cuz it makes a lot. Next time I'll cut the sugar down considerably. I ended up adding some lemon juice to reduce the sweetness.
