This is a great Thousand Island Dressing that I clipped out of the paper a long time ago. Not for dieters. I think the sour cream makes the difference.

EXCELLENT flavor! This recipe has the ingredients that all of us normally have in our pantry. I put a smaller amount of onion than suggested. The sour cream gives it a small amount of sharpness that I enjoyed. Will have again. Thanks Mary for sharing. Prepared as a participant in Aus/NZ 2008 Swap #15.

A truly wordeful dressing! I made one serving, just for myself and so I added: 1 green onion, 1tbsp sour cream, 1tbsp mayo, 1/2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tbsp vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon ketsup and the flavorings to my taste. Served it over a bed of lettuce and arugula. Spicy enough from the vinegar, the mayo and the pepper, it woul be perfect with broiled vegetables or with fried potatoes! Simply wordeful and low fat, just 210 calories for my lunch! Thanks for sharing!
