Thousand Island Dressing

Although you can certainly buy pre-made Thousand Island dressing, what you might not realize is that you probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen to make this classic sauce. With just seven ingredients you can prepare homemade Thousand Island dressing in just minutes.

And while I love this dressing on salads, including the classic wedge salad, it has so many other uses too! You can drizzle it on sandwiches or burgers (it’s similar to Big Mac sauce). Or use it in cold pasta salad or quick coleslaw. Thousand Island Dressing also makes a great dipping sauce for things like French fries or chicken tenders.
