Thousand Island Dressing
« on: February 27, 2015, 12:45:10 PM »
Okay, I've tried and tried to get used to Ranch instead of Thousand Island - but it's just not the same! It ruins my whole "salad experience" because I just don't like it nearly as well!

So I tried the homemade low-carb Thousand Island recipe I found in the forums that was something like:

1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sugar-free ketchup
3 tablespoons sugar-free sweet relish
1 tablespoon prepared mustard

This is VERY close to "the real thing" - except it seems way too sweet to me and my husband!  What's causing this?  The ketchup or relish?  And any tips on how I might adjust this recipe to make it less sweet but still have it taste, smell, and look like the real thing?!!

Thanks a bunch!

Hi, Jacki! :)

Try reducing the amount of sugar-free sweet relish from 3 TBSP to 2 TBSP.
Adjust again (up or down) depending on your tastes.
