Outback Steakhouse Tangy Tomato Dressing

So many folks expressed interest in a knockoff of this dressing that I couldn't put it off any longer. Suited up in protective gear and tricked out with safety goggles, I set out to tackle the tangy beast. Now, fresh out of the underground laboratory, comes this simple formula for recreating Outback's popular sour/sweet salad topper in your own cozy kitchen.  Mix it together, heat it up, cool it down, and store it in the fridge until salad time.

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon ketchup
1/3 cup water
Brings salads to an Outback level!

My husband can't live without this tangy tomato dressing. Perfect balance of sweet, sour and spice! It's extremely close to the original. I find that I use about 1/3 less water than the original 1/3 c. So the finished product is a little thicker!

Exchange the one or two extra T of ketchup for sirrachia, and/or the cayenne powder for chipotle, and/or the sweet paprika for smoked paprika. Serious flavor + heat! Cheers.

This dressing is really good. It is a good combination of sweet, tangy, and spicy. I can't say if it compares exactly to the restaurant's version - I have eaten it several times and know I really love it, but it's been a while. Even so, I still loved this recipe. It is a keeper and will stay in my recipe file!
