My mom has always told me how much she loves the Tangy Tomato Salad dressing at Outback so I was intrigued when I came across this recipe in my "Top Secret Restaurant Recipes" cookbook.  I'm a loyal ranch dressing fan at Outback; however, I planned to use up the bag of spinach I opened for tonight's Tuscan Garlic Chicken so it wouldn't go to waste.  We lost a bunch of condiments when the compressor went out in the refrigerator, so instead of spending a ton of money restocking the refrigerator with various salad dressings, I decided to try to make one.  This was super simple to make and tasted delicious.  I can't compare it to Outback's since I always get ranch; however, I really enjoyed this dressing.

Here's what you'll need

Outback's Copy Cat Tangy Tomato Salad Dressing
1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp ketchup
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
pinch dried thyme
1/2 salt (optional)


In a small sauce pan, combine all the ingredients and whisk together.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook five minutes. 


Transfer to desired container, cover, and chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.


This dressing is very tasty.  We used it on a spinach salad with diced hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, red onion, and homemade bacon bits.
