PREVIOUS: Tahini Dressing NEXT: Basic Ranch Dressing

Ingredients (8)

  • 1 cup homemade (see What to Buy note) or store-bought mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 large hard-boiled egg, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped black olives
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped white onion
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives

Often confused with Russian dressing, Thousand Island at its best is tangy and loaded with olives, peppers, and hard-boiled egg.

What to buy: Store-bought mayonnaise will work fine in this recipe, or you could make your own.


Combine all ingredients in a bowl and fold together until well mixed. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
