Day 15

Thousand Island Dip is one I've been seeing my mother buy for salads ever since I was a little kid. Actually not just her, I've bought it so many times for an indulgent salad dressing or a chip dip and today I wonder why ? Why was it always store bought. It is just so so simple to make and an exact replica of the store bought ones. Though of course the recipe can differ from brand to brand.....person to person.

This recipe goes amazingly well with Fries /Potato Wedges / Chips / Onion Rings etc.
I served these with my homemade baked potato and sweet potato wedges. Other serving suggestions could be mixing it with chicken or boiled eggs or even vegetables and it makes a smooth sandwich spread. It's quick and fuss free.

So remember the homemade mayo we made the other day, take that a step forward by converting some of it into the infamous Thousand Island Dip !!

Thousand Island Dip


1/2 cup Mayonnaise (get the recipe here)
2 tbsp Tomato Ketchup (I used the hot'n'sweet maggie sauce)
2 tbsp Sweet Pickle Relish* (get the recipe here)
2 tsp Finely Diced Onion
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 tsp white Vinegar
a pinch of salt
2-3 dashes of Tabasco. (optional)


1. Add all the above ingredients in a mixing bowl. whisk it well till everything is well blended. Refrigerate for at least an hour for the flavours to mature.

2. Serve.

* Now again, remember the relish we made on day 3. Take that and chop it very finely. It is the exact same thing

PS - Did I mention Burgers ? Homemade Burgers? Go have them now with this dip !!
