Thousand Island Dressing

This was my first attempt at homemade Thousand Island dressing and it was a success. There are so many recipes out there and most I did not have all of the ingredients on hand for so I ended up combining several recipes into one. My husband claims it tastes like the Thousand Island dressing he remembers from New York. This was quick and really easy to throw together. You could throw it together and serve right away but if you let it set for a few hours the flavors develop better. My usual warning about flavors start with small amounts and adjust to your taste. Listed below are the amounts of spices I started with but I did some adjusting to make it more to our liking which I do not remember what the final amounts were.

1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 mayonnaise
1/4 cup dill relish
2 tablespoons chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
4-5 drops hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Combine everything and mix until blended. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
