Thousand Island Dressing

Often confused with Russian dressing, a true Thousand Island dressing contains ketchup, onions, and sweet pickles and surprisingly, usually a bit of cooked egg for an unsuspecting savory quality. Homemade will always taste best.

1 cup mayonnaise
¼ cup ketchup
1 hard-boiled egg, peeled, chopped
2 tablespoons minced red bell peppers
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 tablespoon sweet pickles
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
¼ teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor; puree until smooth. Thin with water if needed. Chill 1 hour before serving.
