thousand island dressing



I know what your thinking... 'How boring. How tedious. How tiresome. How trite. A thousand island dressing recipe? Can't you post something else? I've been lurking on your Facebook page. I saw something about chocolate peanut butter pretzels bites. Damn it, why aren't you posting those?'

Because this needs to be in your cooking arsenal, that's why.

Also you have to wade through all the crap to get to the good stuff for example; this post.

Imagine you are at a party and for some reason you are helping your host with dinner and she's all like, 'Oh no, I wanted to serve Thousand Island Dressing with the salad but gosh darn it, I don't have any. Whatever shall I do?'  Think Scarlett at her whiniest.

Just go with me here, you can poke all the holes you want through the plot later on.

You look at the contents in your host refrigerator and and say in your best MacGyver/Super Hero voice, 'Don't worry. I got this covered.' Bam! You save the day. You officially kick ass like some ninja ass kicking koala bear. Cute, cuddly, swift and fierce.

Impressive, right?

I just now figured out how easy it is to make ranch dressing. And now I wonder why I ever bothered to buy it. It appears thousand island is similar in that way.
