Thousand Island Dressing

2/13/2020 – The recipe below was inspired by Ina Garten’s 1000 Island Dressing recipe here.

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon minced capers
  • 1 teaspoon minced gherkins
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickles
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper

Made a double batch and it was too much for a pint jar. A triple batch would be about right to almost fill a quart.


A kicked-up version to try.

  • ¾ cup good mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup good ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp light sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp capers, minced then measured
  • 2 tsp. dill pickles, minced then measured
  • 1 ½ Tbsp sweet relish, measured then somewhat drained in a napkin
  • 1 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice

Next Time – The first prep was a bit bland. The kicked-up version above will help but also add ground cayenne pepper.
