[Thousand Island Salad Dressing]

Thousand Island.  Who DIDN'T grow up on this?  A dollop on top of some ice-berg lettuce with a cut tomato ... that was on my dinner plate most nights, growing up.  And although I now opt for the more sophisticated vinaigrettes and emulsions ...  1000 Island still is a yummy choice.  And I found this article on where it began ... 

There are MANY different recipes for this, some with ketchup, some with vinegar and sugar, some with Russian dressing (dressing to make dressing??)  ... but here's the one that was in my mother's recipe box ... 

Thousand Island

1/2 cup mayo
1 tbsp chili sauce (homestyle Heinz)
1 hard-boiled egg, grated
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 tbsp green relish
salt & pepper to taste


- mix.  *grin*
