Thousand Island Dressing

Thousand Island salad dressing is a great starter recipe for kids—there’s no measuring, it’s all done by eyeballing its texture and color, and it’s very hard to get it wrong. This was the first “recipe” that I learned in my mom’s kitchen. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Put a glob of mayo in a bowl (maybe 1 c.)
  2. Add a little bit of pickle relish (about 1 tsp.)
  3. Squirt and mix in just enough ketchup until the dressing is a pleasant pink color.

Shake in some garlic powder if you want a little more zing.
