    Easy Homemade Thousand Island Dressing
    This was good. I would prefer a less of a ketchup ratio but it is definitely edible and I will use it all week for my dinner salads. I cut the recipe in half.

    Did you use mayonnaise ot did you use miracle whip in yours?The reason why I asked like I did.All I ever use is miracle whip.How much ketchup would you prefer to use stead of the 1 cup of it? Knowing that I tend to have them ingredients in my kitchen.

    I wish I was going to have radishes this year. Due to water rationing - no garden this year! :-(
    I used mayonnaise. I don't care for Miracle Whip at all. Most Thousand Island recipes don't call for equal amounts of mayonnaise and ketchup. The ketchup is usually 1/2 the amount of mayonnaise.

    Sorry to hear about the water rationing :( Does that mean you not growing anything? I know you grew tomatoes and cucumbers before. I very much dislike Miracle Whip as well. I remember going to a friends house when I was little and her mom made us sandwiches with Miracle Whip and I would choke that thing down, not wanting to be rude. Oh gosh that was awful! I cringe when I see it in the store....

    Awww, such a polite little girl. I'm not certain I could have done that!
    I have some volunteer potatoes I want to keep alive. I'll probably try a basil plant and tomato in container. I really want my basil and tomatoes! I catch the shower water in a bucket as it heats up. I'll use that water for my garden. And the birds.
    I'm gonna be jealous of your radish crop! I love those things!

    I make something like this, but I usually do a dash of this and that. Not measuring anything. I use most of the ingredients in this post, until I get the right taste. I never use milk in it! Miracle Whip, I find is much thinner than bought Mayo. I am a Mayo person, but by HB likes Miracle Whip! I end out making two separate potato salads or sammies and things b/c of that!
    Gee Frankie, I did not know you were still on water rationing? is that a common thing to happen there? What a bummer for you as I know you really enjoy your garden! We had a severe drought a couple of years ago in some areas. They charged people high fines, if they were caught watering any type of gardening containers! I always feel sorry for the poor birds and wildlife when stuff like that happens:(

    Yeah, I feel for the birds and wildlife, too. I have a dish of water sitting outside my yard for any stray critters that come by. Right now we are on 20% voluntary cutback but by this summer it will be mandatory. I started now because I know I'll have to do it by June. May as well get used to it, if I can! Marie is in the same boat as me. Well, its kinda a grounded boat. :-P

    That does seem like a lot of ketchup..I'm just not a fan of the stuff anyway:) I still like your thousand island dressing the best FA..the one with the liquid smoke:)

    We are cutting back on water here as well..we have never been "water wasters", but have most certainly cut back even more than usual. I always have the birdbath full and another big dish of water for the squirrels, deer & raccoons..that I will not let go dry!
