Homemade Thousand Island Salad Dressing Recipe

We love to eat salads all year long and we prefer to eat our salads with a wide variety of homemade salad dressings. If you make your salad dressings from scratch they are healthier for you and they save you a ton of money since bottled salad dressings are very expensive these days. Here is one of our favorite homemade salad dressing recipes.

Homemade Thousand Island Salad Dressing Recipe

1/2 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
1 hard boiled egg, finely chopped
1 tablespoon finely chopped green or black olives
1 tablespoon onion, minced
1 tablespoon green pepper, minced
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped (we use fresh)
1 teaspoon ground chili powder
1/4 cup steak sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a medium sized mixing bowl combine together all of the above ingredients and stirring until all ingredients are well combined. I don't use an electric mixer when making this as we like our egg, onion and pepper to remain intact. If you want a really smooth sauce then by all means use the electric mixer to combine the ingredients. Pour into a glass jar and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
