I found the following discussion this month on eGullet about "Western Salad
Dressing" and "Catalina Dressing." Will DARE have ass "Western"? Neither is in
William Grimes's new book, EATING YOUR WORDS.
I spent sometime today with the search box and, to my horror, found that
"western dressing" did not exist in eGullet's forums. How can this be? Are we
truly a world of forum-goers that doesn't like Western dressing? Have we lost our
way with yuzu or grains of paradise not to ever mention Western?
As a fan of the unnaturally-red, sweeeeet, sour, and thick salad dressing, I
decided I must put an end to this tragedy. So I say to all my Western dressing
compatriots, be thou not ashamed. Remember thou recipes that seem like only
the 50s could produce them, e.g., taco salads using Western or London broil
marinated in Western.
Voice your support for this ever useful condiment! Join the Western thread!

Funny -- I thought I'd never had "Western" dressing before. Now I realize
that I have, in fact. All these years, I was blaming Catalina for that

COMPLETELY OFF TOPIC
WHERE DID BARRY POPIK GO FOR DINNER?--Green Papaya (Thai) on Sullivan Street
in Greenwich Village, right next to the closed Sullivan Street Theater that
used to house the long-running THE FANTASTIKS. A satisfactory place that you'd
probably travel a few miles for in Minnesota or Wisconsin. In New York City, on
a block with decreasing foot traffic, no one goes. I overheard the diners
next to me say, "I walk by this restaurant all the time and it's always empty.
But I like it."
