My rip-off of the Outback Steakhouse Tangy Tomato dressing

I love the tangy tomato dressing from the Outback Steakhouse, but they won’t sell it to you unless you are actually using it in the restaurant. I learned this when I was craving it one night, so I decided to try a few things and I think this is what worked best. It’s not exact, but I think it’s pretty close. So, this is my (totally made up) Outback Steakhouse Tangy Tomato Dressing recipe.

Tangy Tomato Dressing Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup of ketchup
  • 1/4 cup of Catalina (or French) dressing
  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon of chili powder (this adds the spice so use a little less if you don’t want too much… or just omit)
  • 1/8 teaspoon of thyme

Tangy Tomato Dressing Directions

Mix all of these ingredients together over a boiling stove for a couple of minutes.

Cool, refrigerate, and enjoy!

It’s not just for salads

While I love this on a salad (and that’s the only way I eat it), you can do so much more with a recipe like this one. Here are eight ideas from the Daily Meal.

  1. Make a dipping sauce
  2. Make a marinade
  3. Use it in braised dishes
  4. Flavor fried chicken
  5. Make a stir fry
  6. Make hot dip
  7. Use it in bruschetta
  8. Flavor potato salad
