I am from Mid Missouri. I haven't eaten either of those sammies but they both sound good. This is a grinder:

I've never heard of Western dressing. Here in Massholia, we eat Subs, but all the sub shops call them Grinders.
I've seen Catalina and French dressing on the store shelves here never Western. They also sell Russian dressing, which is essentially mayo and ketchup.

It's much closer to a Catalina than a French but your comparison is spot on. I'd forgotten about Western dressing and absolutely LOVED it. Great on veggies as a dip - never thought of it as an actual condiment on a sammy by any name.

Sent the G/F the link and hopefully will have some soon. It could be a "northern" thing cuz that's where I first had it and the O/P is from them parts.

Thanks for the memories.

I have lived out west my entire life and never heard of Western Dressing. What that link looks like, as previous brethren have commented, is Catalina dressing or a French dressing. I actually like the stuff. Its one of the few dressings I will buy and take home. I am in a distinct minority I believe.


Grinders? Not a popular term in any of the western states I have lived in. From your description, I don't recognize it either as something I've seen.


I guess what this post shows is how specific and different a particular dish can be in different parts of the country. Just because I'm not familiar with it, or its ingredients, doesn't mean beans. Its just me. Interesting post however. Nobody ever shows Catalina dressing as being useful. I love it.

Grinder is a term used only in the upper Midwest that I’m aware of.

Never heard of Western dressing

This is the only sandwich I have ever known of as a Grinder.

https://www.whichwich.com/menu/grinder/

It is fantastic with some balsamic vinaigrette. I would not use either of those dressings you mention on anything (assuming the people saying Western is similar to French are correct).

I only use French dressing on pizza. It's a "must have".

Man, I remember Western dressing as a kid in the 70's! Didn't know it was still around.

You can buy Western dressing at select Walmart and Target stores. Looks like Catalina to me.

After some Googling, Catalina and Western are not the same. If you take Catalina and scratch the vinegar and pepper, but add some onion and garlic powder, ketchup, worcestershire sauce and honey, you get Western.

Catalina is closer to French. They both have oil and vinegar with salt, pepper and sugar, but they diverge from there.

French, Catalina, Thousand Island, Russian and Western are all different dressings.

None of them go on a grinder which is a sub type sandwich or a power tool, not a burger!

Russian and Thousand island go on sandwiches including corned beef, pastrami and maybe even a burger that includes lettuce. French and Catalina go on salads. Not sure there is a use for Western, at least not east of the Mississippi.
