If you like Thousand Island Dressing, here is your warning: tasting this homemade dressing will officially ruin you for all other versions.
We eat this on hamburgers, salads (of course), dip carrots in it, celery sticks, I have been known to just go to the fridge with a spoon from time to time just to taste it!
This is Thousand Island at its freshest, creamiest best. I am serious, do NOT make this if you want to fall back on those store bought versions. You will rue the day Kraft ever decided to desecrate such a wondrous invention.
You’ll need: Chili sauce, mayonnaise, pickle relish, three or four boilied eggs, and some finely diced onion.
Place mayo in a bowl. That looks kind of gross, doesn’t it? Hang in there, I promise the outcome will be DIVINE!
Pour in your onion.
Dice up your eggs and add them in there.
Add chili sauce. I didn’t add the whole bottle, you can go by the recipe on the perfect amount.
Add pickle relish, again amount according to recipe.
Until you are left with the most delectable thousand island dressing you have ever, in your life, tasted.
Thousand Island Dressing
1 Quart Mayonaise
4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
7 ounces chili sauce
4 ounces pickle relish
1 ounce minced onion (I used 1 tsp)
2 1/2 ounces chopped fine pimento (see note on pimento)
Blend well and refrigerate overnight (you may add a little milk if you want yours thinner).
Note on pimento: I bought pimento, I paid for pimento, I brought pimento home. I could not find pimento. I could not find it in my house, I could not get it from a mouse. I could not find it here nor there, I could not find it anywhere! Therefore, I left out pimento. I couldn’t tell a bit of difference, either!
This is my week in DISNEY WORLD!! I have written up a series of great posts to go up while I am away. They are all part of this one special meal my mom used to make us so be sure you stay tuned to watch the meal unfold! I will be checking in from time to time and responding to comments a little while I am away so don’t go quiet on me! I do hope you all have a wonderful week! I’ll tell Mickey “hi” for you!
You can follow my Disney reports and photos on my Twitter which is at the bottom left of this webpage.
Loved this!! And I also got a chuckle out of your no-show pimento. Dr. Seuss would have been proud! Big blessings!
Blessings to you as well Joann!!!
minced or finely cut celery, red onion slivered, mayo, catsup, tobasco sauce, celery seed and ms dash. Best sauce for a Rueben I’ve ever had. Put it on a ham and cheese sandwich and nuke it!!
I use ketchup instead of the chili sauce and add cottage cheese to make it creamier. Just smoosh it with a fork to break it up. (I turned up my nose the first time someone told me he made it with cottage cheese but it works!) It’s so good!! I love it on a cold wedge of iceberg lettuce. 🙂
