Thousand Island Dressing

(4 Votes)
Coming In:

This recipe for Thousand Island Dressing, which originated at a hotel in the Thousand Islands area of central New York State, is very similar to what most of us think of as Russian dressing.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sweet relish
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
What To Do:
  1. In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise and ketchup until thoroughly blended. Fold in relish; serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve.

Makes 1-1/2 cups dressing.


Use this dressing within 3 to 5 days and mix before each use. It's the perfect homemade dressing because you always have the ingredients on hand.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I always chop up hard boiled egg and add it to this recipe. I thought to be "Thousand Island" it had to have hard boiled egg. I still think adding the egg does add an extra something to it. I use chili sauce instead of ketchup, also. Extra sugar too. Try it, you'll like it.

I will never buy bottled dressing again. This is the best thousand island we have ever tasted.

I use chili sauce instead of ketchup. Add a little sugar and pepper.

I make this all the time my kids will eat nothing else. They say it taste better.
