Thousand Island Dressing Recipe

These days, Thousand Island dressing is probably more popular as a sandwich spread than a salad dressing. For a real treat, try it on your next burger!

Any of the mayonnaise-based salad dressings can be made with store-bought mayonnaise. But if you really want the full effect, why not try making your own mayonnaise?

What You'll Need

  • 1 pint Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Chili sauce (or cocktail sauce or ketchup)
  • 1 tablespoon onion (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons green pepper (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons pimento (drained and finely chopped)
  • Optional: 1 large hard-boiled egg (chopped)

How to Make It

  1. In a glass bowl, combine the mayonnaise and other ingredients. Chill.
  2. Store unused portion in the refrigerator, where it should keep for a day or two.
