Thousand island dressing is one of our favorites. It tastes good on salads, hamburgers, and even a Reuben sandwich. It has been around for years and is a crowd pleaser. The taste of thousand island on a nice crisp salad is always delicious.
This dressing is also a quick recipe to make. Always love something that can be made in five minutes or less. It takes just three ingredients and a spoon or a whisk , a few turns of the wrist and its done. It even tastes good to me if it hasn't had time to chill, usually I already have everything in the refrigerator any way.
These are the three simple ingredients you use.
Put them in a bowl and...
Voila! you have Thousand Island Dressing!
It goes perfectly well on the salad shown here topped with eggs and bacon.
Thousand Island Dressing
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- ½ cup plus 2 T. chili sauce
- 3 Tbsp. sweet relish
- Mix the mayonnaise, chili sauce, and relish together and let refrigerate till cold.
What’s the extra 2 Tbs of chili sauce for?
We thought that 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsps. Chili sauce gave the dressing a good consistency. You can use just 1/2 cup. Chili sauce, if you want.
