  • In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and ketchup. This mixture forms the creamy and tangy base of the Thousand Island dressing.
  • Stir in the finely chopped pickles (or pickle relish) and onion. These add crunch and a burst of flavor to the dressing.
  • Mix in the white vinegar, sugar, salt, and ground black pepper. The vinegar adds a slight tang, while the sugar balances the acidity.
  • If using, gently fold in the finely chopped hard-boiled egg, Worcestershire sauce, and parsley. These optional ingredients can add depth and a rich flavor profile to the dressing.
  • Ensure all ingredients are thoroughly mixed together. Adjust the seasoning to taste, adding more salt, pepper, or sugar if needed.
  • Refrigerate the dressing for at least an hour before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.

Storage Tips

Thousand Island dressing can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. The acidity from the vinegar and ketchup acts as a preservative, extending its shelf life.

Useful Properties of the Main Ingredient

Mayonnaise, the primary ingredient, is a source of vitamin E and healthy fats, which can be beneficial when consumed in moderation. Choosing a mayonnaise made with olive oil or other healthy oils can increase the nutritional value.
