That fact that it was Friday night was an excellent excuse, as far as I'm concerned, for taking a tiny cooking vacation and getting take-out pizza instead...well, in this case, take-out/bake-in Papa Murphy's pizza. To make this meal as simple as possible, we were taking a kitchen time-out after all, a lopped off wedge of iceberg lettuce with Thousand Island dressing was a delightful change from the usual tossed salad. Just to keep myself in culinary check, however, I must confess that the salad dressing was not from a bottle. When it is so easy, much healthier and infinately more delicious to put together a quick creamy or vinaigrette dressing at home, I just can not justify the stuff out of the bottle.
To make this tasty Thousand Island dressing combine the following: 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons ketchup, 2 tablespoon sweet pickle relish, 1 tablespoon minced onion, dash Worcestershire sauce, dash hot sauce, sprinkle of garlic powder and salt and pepper. Prepare the dressing about 15-30 min. before dinner to allow the flavors time to mingle. Also, a fabulous onion ring or french fry dipping sauce, particularly if you add a tablespoon or two of horseradish!
