My aunt and I created this delicious dressing that is a mock-up of the regular Thousand Island Dressing you find in the supermarket.
I had a lot of people try it and say it tastes and looks like the Thousand Island Dressing.
I also have other people say they don’t eat Thousand Island Dressing but love this one. So I feel like it’s a win/win situation. And because it’s dairy-free and allergy-friendly, I thought it would be fun to call it 1k Dressing instead of Thousand Island to make it unique.
I hope you enjoy this my friends!! Let me know what you think.

So what makes this FBR 1k Island Dressing so amazing?
FBR Oil-Free Ketchup
Dill Pickle Relish
Now let’s prepare this delicious meal.
Combine all the dressing ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir until completely mixed together. This is an easy recipe to have your kids and grandkids help make. They will love the flavor!!
Add 1 cup of the Vegan Mayo
Here’s what I do. After I make the FBR Creamy Seasoned Ranch Dressing, I use the remainder of the Mayo in the 2nd jar to make this recipe. It turns out to be the perfect amount. 1 1/2 jars (3 cups) for the Ranch Dressing and the remaining cup is used for this one.
Note: You can also use 1/2 cup vegan mayo and 1/2 cup dairy-free yogurt to replace the 1 cup vegan mayo. Depending on your allergy or dietary restrictions.
2 green onions finely chopped
First, rinse onions under cool tap water and remove any wilted part or cut off damaged green parts you don’t want. Cut off the stringy root ends and dispose of them. Cut off 2″ or less of the green ends to get a fresh green onion to work from.
Use the 2-in-1 Clever Food Chopper Cutter & Cutting Board to thinly cut your green onions right into the bowl.
Thinly slice the green onions by hand Option 2:
If you don’t have 2-in-1 Clever Food Chopper Cutter & Cutting Board, use your knives and thinly slice the onions. You can layout the onions in a row on a cutting board and cut off the stringy root ends and dispose of them. Cut off 2″ or less of the green ends to get a fresh green onion to work from.
Then thinly slice your green onions with a knife. Add to bowl when done.
1 minced garlic clove = to about 1 tsp
Or go to my garlic page to see how to chop and mince the garlic by hand.
1/4 cup Farr Better Ketchup
If you want, you can use regular ketchup. But be aware of oil, fructose, added sugar and other ingredients that we all should avoid. Read the labels.
2 tbsp Dill Pickle Relish
Add 1 tsp lemon juice
Here are some Lemon Lime Citrus Squeezer options I enjoy using to maximize the juice amount. If this doesn’t work, you can purchase an allergy-friendly lemon juice product as an option.
Ideas to use this delicious dressing
Once the dressing is done, add it to other wonderful dishes. Ideas off the top of my head are for sure salads, wraps, lettuce wraps, tortilla roll-ups, veggie dip, dress on baked potatoes, pasta dishes, veggie burgers, flatbreads, fries or tater tot dip, potato wedge dip, tacos, get the idea?
Ideas to store this delicious dressing
My favorite dairy-free mayo is Follow Your Heart® Non-GMO Veganaise Soy-Free Better Than Mayo Dressing in the 16 oz jars. When I make my dressing’s, I just put it back in the jar to store it in the refrigerator. PS. I also store my bulk seasonings in these jars and just label them. They are perfect for storing so many dry products like quinoa, legumes, nuts, seeds and more. Reuse resources you already have my friends.
To save money you can order your mayo in bulk.
These jars are also great if you are juicing. I would label the jars with the different juicing recipes I created. The family loved it.
Any Jars should work that you can seal tightly. Be creative. Label your jars with our wonderful wrap it, label it, store it page.

Where did this dressing get its name from?
Thousand Island Dressing was named in honor of the beautiful area where it was first prepared, Thousand Islands, New York.
Who invented it?
The story goes, in the early 20th century, a fishing guide’s wife, Sophie Lalonde, made the condiment for her husband’s shore dinner.
Actress, May Irwin liked it so much she requested the recipe.
She in turn, gave it to another Thousand Islands summer visitor George Boldt, who was the owner of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York.
Boldt then directed his world-famous maitre d’, Oscar of the Waldorf, to put it on the hotel’s menu at once.
