This is the best recipe! I've made it several times and haven't purchased bottled thousand island dressing since. <br/>HERE IS A TIP:<br/>The first thing I do is dissolve the sugar completely in the vinegar. That way I don't have to wait several hours for the sugar to dissolve while in the refrigerator. Mine is ready to go as soon as I make it. :)

Wow, I am so glad that I ran out of salad dressing! I made a huge green salad for dinner topped with shrimp, tomatoes, avocado and sliced hard boiled eggs - and then realized I had only greek dressing in the fridge. This might have been okay in a pinch, but this dressing made it awesome! I left out the sugar, because the relish gave just the right amount of sweetness. One of the best salads I have ever had (if I do say so myself)!!

Better than store bought! Thanks for sharing. BTW, you can substitute the white vinegar with white balsamic vinegar and leave out the sugar!
