Perfect! This is exactly like the one my Mom used to buy. She added a few garlic cloves and some celery seed. I did that when I made it and it reminds me of a time long ago when I could reach into the fridge and pull out a jar of this great dressing. Thanks for the recipe and the memories.
Kraft Miracle French was my all time favorite. When I saw this recipe I got so excited I made it immediately. This is definitely NOT the Kraft Miracle French at all. It is however very much like the traditional creamy orange french dressing that was everywhere when I was a kid. As others have written, the Miracle French was a typical oil/vinegar consistency that separated out immediately when you set down the bottle. It had to be shaken every time before use and with the Kraft style bottle having the thin neck when you opened a new bottle it was almost impossible not to get mostly oil out on the first pour because it separated so rapidly. This recipe is very well emulsified and stayed that way. Tastes good, but nothing like my all time favorite Miracle French. As one of the other writers suggested I have called and written to Kraft many times over the last 15 years to get it brought back and I even offered to buy the recipe to no avail. I am disappointed, and will keep looking for my Miracle. *wink*
I also grew up on Kraft Miracle French; loved it! I've tried many of the "copy cat" recipes and none of them came close to the original...until I found this recipe. It is the CLOSEST to the original that I've found.
Make 1 pkg of Good Season's Italian Dressing mix according to the package directions, then add:
1-1/2 Tablespoons ketchup
1 Tablespoon sugar or Splenda
1 scant teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 tsp. sweet paprika (it must be sweet paprika, not regular)
Mix all together and enjoy. Hope you like this one as much as we do!
