Thousand Island Dressing (Lower Fat)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

This will make about 2 cups of dressing or 8 (1/4-cup servings) if you want a full-fat version, omit the water and add in 1/4 cup more of full-fat mayo. This dressing will increase in flavor with refrigeration time, so it is best if chilled overnight before using.

  2. Add in more water to thin if desired and adjust all ingredients to taste.

Have not eaten Thousand Island dressing in a long while, so I thought I would give this a try. Used regular mayo and omitted the water as you suggested. Also left out red peppers, just a preference. Very good recipe and it is even better the next day. Thanks for sharing it.

This made a delicious dressing for my salad this evening! A great blend of flavors that I will make again. The only thing I changed was I didn't use fat free mayo, I used regular. Thanks Kitten!
