Thousand island dressing recipe stashed.

Do you like thousand island dressing? Try making your own, it is easier than you think and it tastes much better than the store-bought versions. More importantly, it won’t have all sorts of chemical substances whose names you can’t even pronounce properly.

1 egg yolk
3 tablespoons vinegar
2/3 teaspoons salt
Dash of white pepper
1 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoons tomato juice
1 tablespoon minced dill pickled cucumber
2/3 cup salad oil (grapeseed oil)

I recommend using grapeseed oil here. It is a mild and nearly tasteless oil so there isn’t a strong oily taste in salad dressings. It keeps well in the refrigerator and doesn’t harden.

  1. Combine the egg yolk with the vinegar, salt and pepper and mix well
  2. Next, add the lemon juice, tomato juice, minced pickle and mix well
  3. Add a few teaspoons of the salad oil to the mixture and beat with a egg beater to combine the oil
  4. Once the mixture starts to emulsify, add the salad oil in a steady stream into the dressing
  5. When all the oil has been incorporated, you are done. Store the dressing in the fridge to chill before using
  6. Use up the dressing as soon as you can. It tastes better fresh

Remember not to add too much oil to the mixture in the beginning. We want the oil to emulsify with the egg yolk mixture and this takes a bit of mixing in the beginning to ensure the yolk and oil binds together. But once the emulsification starts, you can add the oil faster.

You can use an electric blender or mixer to make this homemade thousand island dressing. It cuts down a lot of the mixing work.
