  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar


  • Add all ingredients except sugar to a blender and blend until combined.
  • Gradually add sugar while blending. Blend until creamy and smooth.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


  • This recipe can be made with 1/2 a cup of honey instead of sugar. 
  • Replace sugar with an artificial sweetener such as Splenda for low carb, or keto dressing.
  • Reduce the amount of sugar used if you'd like. I've made it with half a cup of sugar and it was still delicious!
How to store dressing:
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge. 
  • The dressing will keep up to three weeks.
