I love making my own salad dressings and this Homemade Thousand Island Dressing is no exception. It is perfect in every way! Whether you call it Russian Dressing, 1000 Island, or Thousand Island….you won’t ever feel the need to by store bought again.
You could really use this dressing on any of your favorite salads or even on a Reuben sandwich, but my favorite way to serve it is on a Cobb salad. It adds so much flavor and is hearty enough to stand up to all the toppings on the Cobb.
I fell in love with Thousand Island dressing in jr. high school. It was the only dressing that sounded good on our taco salad bar day (shocking….there was no salsa). It was this, Italian, or Ranch….I picked Thousand Island and still love to put it on my taco salads. Hubbyman thinks it’s gross, but I love it!
- 2/3 cup mayonnaise (I used Veganise)
- 1 small onion, finely diced
- 1/8 cup ketchup
- 1 tbsp sweet chili sauce
- 1 tbsp vinegar
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1-3 tbsp milk (opt) (I used almond milk)
- Combine all in a pint sized mason jar and shake well to combine. If dressing is too thick, add some milk, one tablespoon at a time, to thin it to your desired consistency.
