Thousand Island dressing is a classic condiment that’s easy to make at home. Here is a simple recipe:


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 2 teaspoons minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, ketchup, pickle relish, minced onion, and vinegar.
  2. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Stir until well combined and smooth.
  4. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  5. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.

This dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Use it as a dipping sauce for fries, as a salad dressing, or as a sandwich spread. Enjoy!
