  1. My oldest son loves Thousand Island dressing so he is rating this and he gave it 5 stars. Very good and flavorful! Thanks for sharing.
  2. I just found out today that pickle relish is simply just not the same as finely chopped pickles - I have always thought so given my European background I don't really have a pickle relish culture and have never actually eaten it. Anyway - my husband made me aware of this important fact and I had to improvise as I was in the midst of the dip. I added 1 tbsp of chopped pickles and 1/2 tsp brown sugar to make it sweeter. All in all the dressing turned out great and we like it the way it is, but is is certainly not as sweet as other thousand island dressings we have had, which is actually a bonus. Sorry for being so unprepared for this recipe but at least I learned a new food fact :)
