My daughter has started doing lowcarb with me and she loves French dressing, not the Catalina kind, but I can't find any that's not high carb. Does anyone have a real good one...like the orange colored Highcarb French only lowcarb? Thanks, Sue

No one in my family really likes French dressing, so I'm not sure the difference between Catalina and regular. My G-mom was diabetic and she used this for a taco salad recipe she took to church. (The Sugar-full one called for French dressing). There may be a creamy French recipe she changed to sugar free. I will try to locate it.
Sugar-free French Dressing
2/3 cup vegetable oil, olive oil or combination
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 Tablespoons warm water (If needed)
3 pkts. sweetner (1 pink, 1 blue, 1 yellow)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
Put the ingredients in a jar with a screw-top lid. Cover and shake vigorously to blend. (The water can make the dressing better blended) Chill dressing for 8 hours or overnight and remove garlic before serving. Shake well before each use.
I usually skip the water in her dressing recipes (similar notation in her Italian dressing), dosen't seem to hurt the recipe .

I know you said not Catalina, but Dana Carpender has a recipe for Catalina which she calls a "close cousin" of French dressing. Maybe you could tweak her recipe to make it close to what you want?
10 T lc ketchup
10 T lc sweetener
2/3 cup peanut or canola oil
2/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 T minced onion
salt to taste
