Growing up, we often just mixed ketchup and Miracle Whip together, maybe adding some chopped pickles and/or hard-boiled eggs, to use as dressing on our salads. I haven’t done that recently, and when we needed Thousand Island Dressing for Reuben Sandwiches, to use up the St. Patrick’s Day corned beef, I decided to 1) make my own, and 2) find a real recipe. So, this one comes from our tried-and-true Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook.

Thousand Island Dressing

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chili sauce
2 hard-cooked eggs, finely chopped
2 tablespoons green pepper, finely chopped
2 tablespoons celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine ingredients and mix well. Store in covered jar in the refrigerator.
