French dressing, in American cuisine, is a creamy dressing that varies in color from pale orange to bright red. It is made of oil,

vinegar, sugar, and other flavorings, with the color, usually coming from ketchup or paprika.

In the 19th century, French dressing was synonymous with vinaigrette. Starting in the early 20th century, American recipes for “French dressing” often added other flavorings to the vinaigrette, including Worcestershire sauce, onion juice, ketchup, sugar, and Tabasco sauce, but kept the name. By the 1920s, bottled French dressing was being sold as “Millais’ 1890 French Dressing”, but it is not clear whether it included ketchup at the time. The modern version is sweet and colored orange-to-red from the use of paprika and tomatoes. French dressing is generally pale orange and creamy, while “Catalina French dressing” is bright red and less creamy. Wikipedia
