Spring is almost here! Wake up your taste buds with this epic easy and quick low FODMAP Catalina dressing!
Full disclosure, I'm a salad nudist! But if you're a fan of dressings, this simple Catalina dressing is a cult classic!
Catalina dressing has been one of my favourites since I was a kid. Unlike a classic vinegar-based dressing, Catalina dressing is more acidic. It's crisp, zingy flavour makes it perfect for mixed green salads, or savoury salads like a taco salad.
So if you're looking to shake up your daily greens this spring, this easy Catalina dressing is your new bff!
Keep it FODMAP friendly
It turns out Catalina dressing is a bit of a witch's brew. But the only thing you need to keep an eye on is your ketchup.
According to Monash, regular ketchup is low FODMAP in servings of 2+1/4 tbsp (13 g) per serving – even if it has high fructose corn syrup. You can also use Fody Food Co.'s low FODMAP ketchup, which is low FODMAP in servings of 2 tbsp per sitting.
We'll be using 2 tbsp of ketchup total, which works out to 4 g per serving. So you'll be fine no matter which type of ketchup you have on hand.
The remaining ingredients won't add anything notable to your FODMAP load.
The rest of this homemade Catalina dressing is made up of several ingredients that create the perfect tangy and sweet combination. Even though you're putting in more work to make a homemade Catalina dressing, I must say it's worth it because this FODMAP friendly recipe is way better than a store bought french dressing!
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Worcestershire sauce
Like I said, since the measurements for these ingredients are so small there won't be anything over the FODMAP limit. Whether you use a vegetable oil, olive oil, or something similar, make sure when you add the oil it is a light or neutral flavour or else it will overpower the rest of the dressing.
This easy and quick dressing could easily become one of your go-to salad dressing recipes! It goes great on green salads or even FODMAP friendly pasta salads. Feel free to explore!
