Sweet and Tangy
Thousand Island Dressing Recipe

This Thousand Island Dressing Recipe creates a thick creamy consistency which holds well on heavier lettuces like romaine. It makes a salad into a meal - so it is a perfect salad dressing recipe for a lunch or dinner salad.

If you like you can add a few pieces of meat or cheese to your salad and you have a complete meal from a simple salad recipe.

This Thousand Island dressing is also very versatile and can even be used as a condiment on sandwiches, instead of plain mayonnaise. It is sure to perk up the flavour. I like it on my roast beef sandwiches.

• 1/2 cup (120 ml) real mayonnaise

• 2 tbsp (30 ml) ketchup

• 1 tsp (5 ml) hot chili paste

• 2 tbsp (30 ml) sweet green relish

1. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together all the ingredients until well blended.

2. Store your Thousand Island dressing in the refrigerator in a well sealed container. Will keep for 1 week.
