Thousand Island Dressing

This easy Thousand Island Dressing is great on salads, burgers, and sandwiches. |

I have a confession to make. Up until about a year ago pretty much the only salad dressing I would eat was ranch. Since expanding my dressing horizon I see what a disservice I did my salads. For example this Thousand Island dressing is quite yummy. And as a bonus made with things that are usually on hand at my house so I can whip this up at the last minute if needed.

It’s also really great as a sandwich and burger spread instead of plain old mayo or ketchup.

This is another recipe inspired by Trisha Yearwood. The original recipe was pretty easy with mayo, ketchup, hot sauce, and pepper but I found I didn’t care for the consistency and it wasn’t really any different than my chicken finger sauce.
