What’s In Thousand Island Dressing?

The best Thousand Island Dressing is sweet, savory, and just a little tangy. All the flavors are different, but they blend together perfectly.

CREAMY: Mayonnaise and sour cream are the base for this dressing, but heavy whipping cream can be substituted for the mayonnaise and Greek yogurt can be substituted for the sour cream. Always use full-fat ingredients, which are not only totally low carb, but enhance the flavors of any dish.

ACID: All great dressings will have an acidic component to balance the richness of the creamy ingredients. White vinegar and dill pickles give the perfect tartness, but balsamic, or apple cider vinegar will work, too. ANY pickled product like pre-made pickle relish, or even chopped marinated tomatoes, or a jar of olive tapenade gives the right amount of tartness to this dressing. Get creative!

SEASONINGS: Onion powder and salt and pepper work here, but so can garlic powder and even a homemade blend of Southwest Seasoning, or Keto Taco Seasoning.

How Do You Make Thousand Island Dressing?

This is the best part of this recipe! Simply whisk all of the ingredients in one bowl, chill, and use! Drizzle lightly over a salad and toss.

Dressing Tips & Tricks!

Prepare dressing in advance so the ingredients have time to blend in the refrigerator. Once dill pickles are shredded, press them between sheets of paper towel to absorb additional moisture so the dressing isn’t watered down. The dressing will stay fresh in an air-tight cruet or container up to 10 days once it’s made.

Freeze Thousand Island Dressing in ice cube trays and pop one or two into Mashed Cauliflower with Cream Cheese, or stir into a fun Shrimp & Zucchini recipe.
