Really good dressing! I used Hellman's light mayo and chili sauce instead of ketchup. I also subbed in relish for the dill pickle spear. I didn't want to open up a whole can of evaporated milk so I just used skim milk instead. Overall, very good and very easy.

This was good. Instead of using a pickle spear I used pickle relish. And the recipe was so small I had to make some more. Family loved it. Has a tangy taste to it. Would make it again!! Thanks!

I never rate a recipe without doing it exactly as the author described (and you shouldn't either). It turned out 4 star. Then I customized it to serve 8. I was worried about the amount of pickle - but it was just fine. I would have rated it a 5 after the following additions for a serving of eight: 2 minced shallots, an additional teaspoon of evaporated milk, 1/2 teaspoon dried mustard. I used this on my reuben sandwiches and it turned out perfectly delicious!

I increased this recipe to six servings. I used lactose free whole Vitamin D milk and reduced fat mayonnaise in this recipe. Instead of using 1 1/2 of a dill pickle SPEAR (that's what I got when I increased the recipe to six servings), I used two garlic dills. I did taste it after I made it and ended up adding a little onion powder and fresh ground pepper. I used this as a kind-of a dip/side for Potato Reuben Casserole. Kids thought it was fantastic--this would make a great fry dip.

Very good, and worked well on reubens, however the evaporated milk may throw you off a bit. I just happened to have extra evap. milk from a different recipe hence the reason I tried this, but I would not open up a can just to use a half tsp. Thanks Cheryl!

I didn't want to deal with the evaporated milk, so I left that out and probably added a bit more pickle. I only had bread and butter pickles, and it worked well. I used it in a baked pastrami roll, and it was a success. It only makes a little bit of dressing, which makes me happy that I could use all of it. It's easy, quick and good. Thanks for the recipe!

I thought it was wonderful. I did not add worchestershire as I did not have any. I did add a little sugar though.

This was ok, but not as good as the Marzetti Thousand Island dressing I usually use. I would, however, make it again if I wanted to avoid a trip to the store.
