This is what I whip up when I need 1000 Island. It is much better than store bought. Goes great on Reuben sandwiches, salads, burgers or as a dip with French fries. My family does not usually eat 1000 Island but they love this! I love it with Nick's Mom's Reuben Egg Roll Wraps With Dipping Sauce.


  1. Combine all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  2. Mix well.
  3. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

This is my new favorite Thousand ISland dressing. No more store bought for me! I didn't have sweet pickles, so I subsituted Roasted red peppers (in VInegar), and it worked well. Same texture and pickled taste.

This was a decent recipe for a no-chili-sauce 1000 Island Dressing. I made as written, except using regular rice vinegar instead of seasoned (rice vinegar w/ sugar and salt added), but it was too sweet for our tastes, and also tasted mostly like sweet mayo. I added a little extra ketchup and relish, which helped--but then it was WAAAAAY too sweet! Unless you like extremely sweet dressing, I'd suggest cutting the sugar in half at least--then adding more if needed. I would think that the seasoned rice vinegar would make it much too sweet and salty, at least for us. I plan to use it on 'big Mac' Pizza. I think it'll be fine as a sauce on something, but I wouldn't use it on a salad. Sorry it wasn't more to our taste. Thanks for posting! ***UPDATE: This was GREATLY improved after a couple of hours in the fridge. I definitely recommend making this ahead of time to let the flavors combine. It was still a bit too sweet for us, so I think I'll try it with 1 or 1 1/2 t sugar next time. I've upped the rating to reflect my improved opinion of the flavor. It was very good on the big mac pizza, too. It kept for a week or so in the fridge. Thanks again!
