About this recipe: Here's a homemade red salad dressing recipe, just like one a pizza shop would make.
Overall a good dressing that I enjoyed on my salad tonight. I made it in hopes of duplicating house dressing at a family-owned Italian restaurant in our suburban town...it was close, but not *quite* there. I used red wine vinegar instead of distilled and shallot instead of onion. Overall, this was also too sweet, which is why I only gave it four stars. Next time, I'll cut the sugar in half and go from there. I'm also going to try the same ingredients, but sub thinned tomato paste or sauce for the ketchup...it won't still be your recipe this way, but it might put me closer to the restaurant's recipe! EDIT: I have started making this with tomato sauce instead of ketchup and cutting the sugar in half and it's become my VERY favorite salad dressing! Thank you...I wish more people would give this a try. - 07 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I only used 1/2 cup of the sugar and it was sweet enough for me, but it was really thick. Any ideas? - 26 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is very easy to put together and very tasty. I used a third less sugar than the recipe requested because we don't like anything too sweet and it was perfect for us. I'll be making this again. - 21 Feb 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
