My wife would agree with you, but I just don't see the appeal of the stuff. I can't think of another one that really stands out to me though.

Simple answer when one thinks about it...Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing...made from the envelope (NOT the bottle)...made with Hellmann's Mayo and half & half...give it a day to set up properly...

Worse thing about Cattleman's Dressing--is where you have to go to get it...

My husband says the same thing as your wife but I'm kind of meh about it, too.

Cattleman's house dressing and the ranch that comes with your carrot and celery sticks at Wing Stop. We take big batches of that stuff home and use it as salad dressing!

I dont eat many house salads, usually a ceasar if anything, but got to go with this ^. That BBQ ranch is quite tasty

Nothing...nothing...is easier to learn how to make than your own salad dressing. Taste is quite different with everyone...how hard is it to do it yourself? I would hate to be so helpless as to not know how...even mayonnaise is quite easy...it only takes a little learning and the right ingredients and the proper tools.

I cannot help but feel these thoughts are based on advertising and not experience. Cattlemen's is a dirty place--old and shop-worn with sticky tables and crowded with people who saw advertising that is quite effective. I would like to know their REAL repeat customer rate...there just isn't anything there worth wanting twice. It WAS a good place in the 1960's...a very long time ago--and you can only live on memories so long...

I've only been to Cattleman's a few times, but I did enjoy the steaks and the "unique" atmosphere. I'm just not a fan of the salad dressing.

house dressing at VZDs - a garlic-y ranch

house italian at Flip's or the creamy cucumber at Flip's (maybe just in summer?)

Cattlemen's house dressing was featured on Food Network (Diners, Drive-ins & Dives ?)

After further reflection, I do recall that I am fond of the creamy garlic dressing at Charleston's.

The basil balsamic vinaigrette at Signature Grill or the ceasar at Michaels.

I'm not a huge salad fan, but the salad dressing at Tokyo is my favorite.

I love the dressing at Cattlemans, but the Ginger dressing at Shogun's beats it out. I could eat that stuff every day.

I always liked the tobasco caesar dressing from Pearl's Lakeside. I also like the caesar dressing from Outback.

Anything with ginger is good...when I buy it...the checker always has to ask the price from someone else and says..."it's that root thing"...ha!

Steve, I think maybe your question may have gone over most heads. Maybe it's because it burned up in the fireplace.

Good one, Steve...I had to look that one up...my remembrance of the movie is marginal...it was tedious to me (despite my love and trips to San Simeon--even have a sno-globe!)...all I remembered was that droning of "Rosebud" by Orson Welles...

We went to Catfish Cove tonight and I tried their garlic house. It was pretty darn good. I'm going to have to get that now when I go there.

Feel what you want... My thoughts are based on real experiences.....some a very long time ago....and some within the past year....to each his own...

Almost everyone I know agrees...it WAS where we took dates back in the day...1960-70's...just seems to me it is a mere shadow of what it once was. But, everyone sees things differently...I am still dragged there from time-to-time by old friends who think it will return...same old salad with milk/mayo dressing on top on white, bitter letttuce core with a cherry tomato atop...a steak that any Denny's on I-40 can beat...

You admit to eating steak at Denny's, that explains a lot.

I love Flip's house italian, as well. Funny thing is it's a bottled dressing called LaFlora Italian available from wholesale food suppliers. http://www.conwaydressings.com/vinaigrette.html
Flip's has always fessed up that it's not homemade.
