Authentic Thousand Island Dressing
Many variations of this recipe exist, but this version has been a favorite in Alexandria Bay, NY (the Heart of The Thousand Islands) for nearly 50 years.
Thousand Island Dressing II
Simple recipe with mayonnaise, ketchup, and sweet pickle relish. I made this in restaurant quantities and broke it down. You may have to play with it to suit your tastes.
Thousand Island Dressing III
A spicy version of Thousand Island, using chili sauce instead of ketchup. This is best if left to sit in the frig for several hours.
Thousand Island Dressing I
Play with the ingredients to develop a dressing that meets your tastes. You can use between 1 and 2 tablespoons of ketchup, or substitute relish for the chopped dill pickle. Use your imagination!
Not Thousand Island Dressing
The only valid reasons for which I'll make this dressing is for it to be a condiment on a Reuben sandwich or slow-cooked brats/butcher sausages. I am totally a fan of Reubens. This recipe is my own take and I call it my favorite over every Reuben I have had. For me, a Reuben must be made from a cooked-at-home corned beef brisket or real New York-style pastrami. If either of these staples is not available, I will not consider making a Reuben. When it's time to slice the corned beef I don't let myself be sissified. I cut nice slices about 1/4-inch thick. I leave the fat on.
My Favorite Thousand Island Dressing
This is our all-time favorite dressing. Uses simple ingredients that we always have on hand. It's great on simple green salads, taco salads, and even seafood salads. Also great as a burger sauce. Serve over your favorite salad greens.
BaBa's Thousand Island Dressing
This is my husband's favorite salad dressing. BaBas has been making this for him since he was 10 years old. Use this on salads, as a veggie dip, or great for Reuben sandwiches. Will keep in fridge for 2 weeks.
Ed's Thousand Island Dressing
For a great Thousand Island dressing with a very slight kick in spice. The sliced black olives in the jalapeno are a great addition.
Thousand Island Dressing Mastered
I love a rich dressing that works with anything from sauce for fish, corned beef for reubens, on salads, and with only small alterations for each. For fish, add a little more relish or horseradish. My family is old-school picky, and I finally figured out how to please them all.
