The Best Homemade Thousand Island Dressing

The Best Homemade Thousand Island Dressing

This truly is The Best Homemade Thousand Island Dressing. You’ll want to make a double batch! Easy to make and the perfect condiment for sandwiches, wraps, burgers, and so much more!

When I was growing up we had a chain restaurant in our small town that we loved going to. The one thing I ordered every time was a club sandwich with a side of 1000 island dressing. I would dunk my sandwich and my french-fries in the dressing and it was so good!

I wanted to come up with a recipe I felt a little better about eating, especially since I have no restraint when it comes to how much 1000 island goes on my sandwich; it’s a drippy mess and I’m okay with that! 😁

This version I’m sharing with you is made with 1/2 mayo and 1/2 non-fat Greek yogurt, reducing the calories significantly, yet still has that perfect creamy 1000 island taste. My family loves this stuff so much I almost always double the batch. It truly is The Best Homemade 1000 Island Dressing!

I love this dressing on salads, sandwiches (especially a club) burgers, hotdogs, wraps, french fries and tots. It’s easy and super yummy!

Let’s eat!🤍
