Thousand Island Dressing - Reuben Sauce - What-Have-You Sauce

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Julesong

This is the astoundingly good dressing that we use on our reuben sandwiches and in shrimp cocktail. Others have told me that they make it just to use as a dip, and - coming from my description in our Reuben Sandwiches Our Way (Reuben Sandwich Our Way): "you can call it Thousand Island or French, whathaveyou" - keep it on their table and call it What-Have-You Sauce. Thank you for the tribute! :)
