Thousand Island Dressing

With Memorial Day right around the corner many of you may be planning on some sort of salad for your cookout. I always like to have potato salad and a tossed salad for our cookout, so I thought I would share my favorite homemade salad dressing with you.

There is a BBQ restaurant in the town where I was raised that is famous for it’s 1000 Island Dressing, and I spent many many years trying to duplicate it and this is about as close as it gets to their original recipe. It’s sweet with just a little tang to it and when I get a hankering for one of their hickory salads, I just whip this dressing up and it takes me right back home again.
