Two things people from the south love...Thousand Island Dressing and getting their traffic tickets fixed. I tell no lies.
Perfection! Your daddy knew a good thousand island dressing when he tasted it. :) I made half of the recipe and it still made quite a lot! Even though I usually like Hellmans mayo over Miracle Whip, I do think it's important to use M.W. It helps give the base taste to the thousand island dressing. I didn't have pickle juice, so I added a bit more relish. Also, I just skipped the hard boiled eggs. I still thought the dressing came out very authentic. Yummy! ~Made for KK chef pick~
Oh boy, I love salads, and I love dressings, and this was unique and oh so lovely. Chili sauce really brings the taste up without being to harsh, and the sweet pickles addition is perfection. I halved this easily, and now wish I had more. Off to the fridge ~ to make more! I even used this as a dip for some tortilla chips. :) Made for *Everyday is a Holiday*
My favorite is the BH&G cookbook recipe (minus the paprika), but my husband prefers a sweeter version, so I have been searching. We enjoyed your father's dressing; thanks for sharing it.
Made this to go on my green salad the other night. I used Best Foods Mayonaise instead of Miracle Whip since that stuff makes me yak! I used the chili sauce thinking huh used to use Catsup, but oh my I am so glad I used the Chili Sauce it really imparted a great deal better flavor. I never have added chopped egg to this sauce before and now I wouldn't ever make this without them. Thank you dear for a very different and delicious new way to make an old favorite of mine.
Knew it had to be good with chopped hardboiled egg in it! (Like Mom's.) I was a little afraid the chili sauce would make it too spicy, but it just gave it a nice little zip. Very nice! Made for Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook game.
DH gave this a big thumbs up! I made half of this recipe and store brand salad dressing. Didnt have any sweet pickle juice so I added more sweet pickle relish. He said the tanginess in this dressing reminded him of the Kraft brand thousand island dressing. Thank you kittycatmom for posting this recipe. Made and reviewed for 123 Hits tag game.
Oh gooness, this was good!! I used regular mayonnaise and just added about 1 tsp. sugar to the mix. I loved it! Thank kitty! Made for Potluck Party tag.
