This dressing recipe comes from the Edgewood Resort in Alexandria Bay, New York, in the heart of the Thousand Islands region. It has been a favorite at the resort for years. Since I have vacationed in Alexandria Bay every Summer since my birth, I just had to post this recipe. I know, I know, there are a million versions of it out there... but this one is really authentic! It's from the Cornwall Recipe Book, published by the Alexandria Township Historical Society.
- 1 quart mayonnaise
- 1⁄2 cup chopped olive
- 3⁄4 cup sweet relish
- 1⁄2 cup diced red pepper
- 3 chopped hard-boiled eggs
- 1⁄4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1 dash ground cloves
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1⁄4 cup vinegar
- Mix the above ingredients until well blended.
- Chill and spoon over fresh greens.
Excellent. If you enjoy a chunkier dressing, this one is for you! This version is very different from others I have made in the past. I loved the eggs & the olives in this especially. I already have a favorite version of Thousand Island that I also found here on Zaar, but this unique version is every bit as delicious. It is slightly sweet and has an excellent flavor.
This is the real deal. I discovered the recipe years ago after trip to the Thousand Island Inn in Clayton, NY. I love Thousand Island, and I haven't bought a jar of the store junk in years. Great on salads and sandwiches. Very easy to adjust to taste. Try it-you won't regret!
This is an absolutely wonderful thousand island dressing. I just put everything in my food processor and processed it for about a minute and got a great textured dressing. The flavor combination is right on. The only thing I did different was to half the recipe using only 1 egg and added a couple of drops of red food coloring to inhance the color a bit. I used this for looneytunesfan's In-N-Out Double Double TSR Version of In-N-Out Double Double by Todd Wilbur. Thanks Kree
