Low-Fat, Low-Carb, Low-Sugar Thousand Island Dressing


Here's a delicious thousand island dressing that will fit almost any diet

While most salad dressing brands offer reduced carb, low- or no-fat versions of popular varieties, it's difficult to find a thousand island dressing that is low in all things fat, sugar, and carbohydrates. You'll see plenty of French, Italian, and Ranch - in fact, about every type is well-represented in low-fat or low-carb with the exception of thousand island. I have discovered a reduced fat variety, but really wanted to accomplish an all-around great flavor that avoided these three key ingredients: fat, sugar, and carbs.

After a little experimentation, I found this base thousand island mixture to work best. You can experiment with different types of salad dressing or mayonnaise - simply choose the degree of fat or fat-free taste that works for you. I began with fat-free mayo and it tasted just fine. Now, I use a reduced fat salad dressing that brings the taste level up several notches.

Low-Fat, Low-Carb, Low-Sugar Thousand Island Dressing
One serving for a dinner-sized salad.

3 heaping tablespoons mayonnaise
3 heaping teaspoons low-car ketchup (CarbOptions)
1 teaspoon hot pickle relish
½ packet Sweet-n-Low

Mix mayo, ketchup, relish, and Sweet-n-Low thoroughly and allow to chill overnight or for an hour or so. Adjust ingredients as desired for color and thickness.

This is a super-easy combo that will taste as good as the full-flavored version (in my opinion) and fill the bill for any number of dietary requirements.
