Thousand Island dressing is a lovely pink dressing. Enjoy it as a sauce or as a salad dressing.
The dressing is believed to have come from the Thousand Islands region. The Thousand Islands are an archipelago in the Saint Lawrence River which straddles the border of the US and Canada.
However, origin stories vary, and it’s possible it was adapted from a similar French dressing.

Thousand island dressing is mayo- and ketchup-based sauce. It’s as easy to make vegan, you just have to use vegan mayonnaise!
The dressing is filled with finely diced onion and pickle relish, with extra tang coming from white vinegar and vegan Worcestershire sauce.
A little minced garlic, salt, and pepper round things to bring a ton of flavor to the dressing.
It’s super easy to make vegan thousand island dressing. You just stir together the ingredients, adjusting anything to taste if needed, and then stick it in the fridge until ready to use!
Make it at least a couple of hours in advance if you can to give the flavors a chance to meld.
