So, sit back and read through, as I will share the secret from my kitchen and I am sure you will love it. This delicious dressing can be made in different ways. I found a few versions online and tried them too. But believe me, it is best made with mayo.
Thousand island dressing can be prepared by mixing mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, ketchup, lemon juice, sweet paprika, yellow onion and kosher salt in a bowl. Then, let it settle for a few hours.
