"A spicy version of Thousand Island, using chili sauce instead of ketchup. This is best if left to sit in the frig for several hours." — Patty Hern

minced green bell pepper
minced sweet pickle
Easy and delicious! Much better that the bottled stuff and comes together great in a pinch! I used Hellman's light mayo and opted out of using the green bell pepper as I didn't think it belonged. I added a splash of Worcestershire and a pinch of sugar. Just what I needed for "Big Cheeseburger Pizza" from this site.
Ok in a pinch. I'm on the hunt for a creamy, restaurant style thousand island & this just wasn't it.
This is fantastic! I left out the green pepper because I didn't have any, but this came out really good. I'll never buy thousand island dressing again!
Couldn't see green bell pepper in this, so I substituted chopped onion and used sweet pickle relish. It sat in the fridge overnight, and the flavors really did improve. Thousand Island dressing is not one that we typically use on salads, but every now and then, we do like it. I love being able to mix up just enough to use for one or two meals rather than buying a whole bottle and then having it sit in the fridge for six months. We used this on reuben sandwiches, and it was REALLY good. Used Duke's Real Mayonnaise, the South's best :-) One comment about the recipe description. I used Heinz chili sauce, so there was nothing spicy about this. Definitely a keeper.
This is a great recipe! You'll never buy that bottled stuff again. I didn't add green peppers or pimentoes - didn't have them. I did add more chile sauce and used sweet relish that I had made. I may add some finely minced onions next time. My Rueben sandwiches certainly tasted better with this on them! YUM!
made this on the fly for a dinner guest . didnt have time to chill it long only about 20 minutes. this is crazy good and i dont eat thousand island on salads. i think this would be excellent on cheeseburgers as a burger sauce. i also like it doesnt use ketchup i just cant get my brain around ketchup on salad even if it is mixed with mayo. great recipe thank you!
I've made twice it's better than the store dressing
I love the green peppers and Pimento together. This is an excellent recipe.
