Chopped Romaine Salad With Thousand Island Dressing

"This dressing is much better than any store-bought. I'm not usually a Thousand Island type of person, but this is great on this salad, and on crab or shrimp Louis as well. I found this in Bon Appetit magazine, February 1998. Prep time does not include making hard-boiled egg."

  1. This dressing turned out thick, but delicious! I do love thousand island, especially on a wedge salad. This one is a little less sweet and spicier. A very nice change from the regular thousand island dressing. Thanks for sharing! Made for FYC tag game.
  2. We really liked this dressing thanks.
  3. Made for a nice main dish meal. Not a huge thousand island dressing fan either, but really enjoyed this rendition. I did add some tomato and some sliced, leftover pork to the mix. :)
  4. This was fabulous and needed no other salad ingredients except for the romaine. I made it exactly as written, except I used pickle relish as well. It also made a lot of dressing, and I used the leftovers as a spread on some chicken cutlet sandwiches. Thanks for sharing this. Made for Cookathon for Lazyme.
  5. When I was younger Thousand Island was my favorite salad dressing, but I got older, branched out, and hardly ever eat it now. This was a real treat for me! I used low-fat mayo and dill pickle relish rather than chopped pickle. Thanks for the recipe!
