MY REVIEW

Needed something quick and easy to make for my son's peewee football after-game tail gate. Couldn't find Western Dressing, so i made some from this link http://www.food.com/recipe/western-salad-dressing-117023

Turned out great, I hope I still have some left for the tailgate... it's so good!

This was yummy. I tripled the recipe and used a whole can of black beans so I probably had more beans than the recipe called for. I used a southwest ranch/chipolte salad dressing, although not as much as was callled for in the recipe as I did not want it dripping in dressing. Will definitely make again.

western dressing is a red dressing similar to catalina but maybe not as sweet.

I don't recognise Western Salad Dressing. Can some one tell me what it is? Like Miracle Whip or? Thanks!

One of my favorite recipes. I like to use Southwest Ranch dressing instead.
