    Please share your Thousand Island salad dressing recipes! I am trying to replace the expensive Marie's Thousand Island salad dressing that I currently buy at the grocery store. (When they have it -- half the time they are out.)

    I tried the recipe in the red plaid (Better Homes & Gardens?) cookbook -- it calls for Worcestershire sauce and diced pimiento olives. Yuck.

    The Marie's version is sweet -- I imagine the recipe will have sweet pickle relish in it, and mayonnaise, and maybe ketchup and boiled eggs?

    It can't be that hard to make, and it can't cost $4 a jar to make it at home!
