Homemade Salad Dressings

Thousand Island Dressing:
1 cup light mayonnaise
1/4 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
2 green onions, finely diced
1 tablespoon sugar
water, to thin if needed
salt and pepper to taste

Place mayonnaise in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the chili sauce, ketchup, pickle relish, green onion, and sugar. If needed add water to get dressing to the desired consistency. I like mine on the thick side. Add salt and pepper if desired and allow to refrigerate covered for at least 1 hour to let the flavors develop.
