Simple recipe with mayonnaise, ketchup, and sweet pickle relish. I made this in restaurant quantities and broke it down. You may have to play with it to suit your tastes.
My recipe is very similar but I add 3 boiled eggs finely chopping and instead of salt and pepper, about 2 tsp Lawry's seasoning salt to counter balance the sweetness of the pickle relish. Also, I use bread and butter pickles sometimes instead of the sweet pickle relish and it gives it an extra good taste. Bear in mind, the more ketchup you use, the sweeter it will be as ketchup contains more sugar than most people realize. I suggest adding a little bit of ketchup at a time tasting as you go.

Well, nothing fancy here and it works great in a pinch! This is especially good on sandwiches vs. salads as it's not like the "authentic" type but more of the get down to basics type of thousand island dressing. I cut the recipe in half and used chili sauce vs. ketchup for a little more "kick". - 25 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have been making this recipe for a long time. I haven't bought dressing in years. Don't need to. I just put a little of everything in a small bowl. Don't measure! Just get it to where I want it and go! It really is easy and uses ingredients you should already have! - 18 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
