Thousand Island Dressing is my favorite salad dressing. I almost always use it when I have salads. I’ve never tried making it and always just assumed it was tough to make. But apparently not ๐Ÿ˜›ย  I’m sure there are lots of variations out there, but I found an easy recipe on Heavenly Homemakers. I didn’t even add all the ingredients…just 3! That’s it, 3 ingredients. And it tastes great! Who knew it was that easy? I made it in about 3 min. this morning. I can’t wait to try it on our cobb salad tonight!! I need to calculate the cost too. I bet it’s pretty cheap. I made the dressing in a pint jar. It makes almost a full pint. Maybe sometime I’ll try making the full recipe. But for today I did just the first 3 ingredients. Yum! The toughest part about this was attempting to take a decent picture ๐Ÿ˜›ย  And tasting salad dressing at 5:00 in the morning ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thousand Island Dressing

1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup pickle relish
1 Tbsp. minced onion (I didn’t add this…just didn’t feel like chopping onion this morning ๐Ÿ˜›ย  It tastes fine without it…but probably would be good with it too.)
1 hard boiled egg, chopped (optional…I didn’t add this.)

Mix ingredients, cover and chill.

    Looks and sounds great! I’ve never had 1000 island, but from the ingredients, I’d probably like it. Glad you got to make your own dressing finally and see how easy it is! ๐Ÿ™‚
