Homemade Thousand Island Dressing

It's barely the middle of February.  Valentine's Day has just passed us, and yet, we have already harvest our first batch of mixed lettuce from our garden!  I can't believe how mild a Winter we've had in Oklahoma this year. Normally we'd have frost come through and kill the lettuce and we'd end up replanting.  However; not so this year! Yippee!  I love homegrown lettuce with every fiber of my being.  It tastes a zillion billion times better than the packaged stuff we buy in stores. And it's so pretty too!  All different colors, flavors...sigh.  

Okay, enough about lettuce! On to the topic at hand.  Homemade salad dressing.  But not just any salad dressing. Thousand Island.  I just love this stuff!  It tastes, (broken record incoming!!) a zillion billion times better than that bottled stuff at the store.  Of course, it may not be as 'convenient' as plucking a bottle out of the ice box and opening the cap, BUT it also doesn't have as many 'I can't pronounce this' ingredients.  Which, in my book is win win.

Homemade Thousand Island Dressing

Ingredients You'll Need:

  • 1 1/3 cups olive oil mayonnaise ( I use Hellmans) 
  • 5 Tablespoons and 1 teaspoon Ketchup
  • 6 Tablespoons and 1 teaspoon Sweet Lime Pickle Relish 
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced onions


  • Mix every thing together.   That it.  Easy peasy.  It is however; better if you let it sit in the icebox for 2+ hours.

Adapted from a recipe found at

You won't regret making this! It is so good!  If you can't find the lime pickle relish, just use regular pickle relish. It should work out fine.
