Made using my easy 2-minute homemade mayonnaise and homemade pickles along with a few other ingredients, this dressing comes together in just a couple minutes and can be adjusted to suit your personal taste. Clean eating, gluten free, keto-friendly, and far healthier than anything store bought that’s going to be chock full of things like stabilizers, emulsifiers, artificial flavorings, and preservatives, this recipe will blow you away!
Add all ingredients together into a bowl and mix well. I almost wish I had more to write here since this feels rather sparse, but it really is all there is to it.
Once mixed together, you can easily adjust the levels of seasoning and flavor to suit your personal taste.
Now, in my opinion, the taste of this can be compared not only to Thousand Island Dressing but also to McDonald’s Big Mac sauce. Hold on now, before you yell at me that Big Mac sauce isn’t the same as Thousand Island, you have to admit that it’s close. And while I know that most recipes that have reconstructed/reverse engineered that particular sauce will unabashedly point out that the copycat Big Mac sauce has no ketchup in it, it is also true that most of them feature French dressing which is essentially a creamy ketchup-based dressing. So, halve the ketchup and skip the smoked paprika and you’ll honestly have a great version that’s pretty darn close to authentic Big Mac sauce on your hands! 😉
Enjoy your dressing on your salads or you can even use it as a spread for burgers and sandwiches! Clean eating, simple and delicious, just how things should be!
Incredibly Easy Homemade Thousand Island Dressing
- Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix together.
- Use and store any leftovers in an airtight jar for up to 3 days in the fridge.
- The ratios of the seasonings added to the mayonnaise base can be altered and adjusted to suit.
- For the best results allow the sauce to rest for 15-30 minutes for the potency of the raw onion to mellow out and mingle fully with the other ingredients.
