Why This Recipe Works
- The sweet-sour balance of ketchup is accentuated with the addition of red wine vinegar and sugar.
- Mayonnaise tempers and smooths out the dressing with a hint of creaminess.
- Puréed onion, garlic powder, and Worcestershire add savory depth and piquancy.
I added some mayonnaise to this dressing to get a creamier result. If you wish to make a traditional version, omit the mayonnaise.
Creamy French Dressing Recipe
The intoxicating appeal of this tangy, sweet dressing should not be underestimated.
2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Place ketchup, onion, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, garlic powder, and salt in the jar of a blender. Purée until onion is completely chopped.
With the motor running, slowly pour in vegetable oil. Use immediately or transfer to an airtight container and store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
