    I know they taste similar, but what's the difference between these two dressings?

    Thanks,

    According to Wikipedia:

    In the United States of America, French dressing is a type of salad dressing, also called Catalina dressing, containing sugar and tomato ketchup.

    So it appears that Catalina and french dressing are the same thing. Catalina is a style of dressing rather than a brand name.

    Catalina is a little more tomatoey and a little sweeter. I make my catalina with ketchup, oil, worchestershire sauce, a little onion and sugar.

    Not sure exactly what is in french. Wonder if it is more like a mayo based with ketchup.
    Hope this helps.

    Thank you. I make my own French, and it's got about the same things as your Catalina. No onions, but maybe onion powder, can't remember. Just wanted know if I could substitute them.
