Thousand Island Dressing

Summertime is here meaning we are eating more salads.  That translates into more salad dressing and by far salad dressings are homemade.  Honestly we eat some type of salad daiy throughout the year but during the summer we eat more because salads are easy to make, low or no cook dishes.  Dressings range from simple lemon juice to homemade viniagrettes as well as a few creamy based dressings.  When it comes to salad dressings, I won't buy something I can easily make at home.  At the same time I like to get a bit creative with salada dressings.

I've been making Thousand Island Dressing from our newlywed days.  This rich and creamy salad dressing is so easy to make with three ingredients most home cooks keep on hand.  They are: MiracleWhip, ketchup and relish.  I honestly don't measure when I make this dressing.  There is about 2 cups of MiracleWhip and don't use mayonnaise as the MiracleWhip adds a bit of zest to the dressing.  Stir in about 3 tbsp of ketcup and 2 tbsp of sweet relish.  Adjust the ketchup and relish if needed to taste.  Don't worry about the initial consistency of the MiracleWhip as the other ingredients will thin it out to the right consistency.  This salad dressing will keep nicely in the refrigerator for several days.
