    May I know what ketchup to use? Can I use Heinz tomato kechup? Then do I use regular mayo or Japanese mayo?

      Hi, Charlyann! Emma here, managing editor for Simply Recipes. Yes, you can use Heinz ketchup, and I recommend regular mayo (such as Hellman’s). Hope that helps!

    Would you be able to substitute the mayo for non-fat Greek yogurt? I have done that with a honey mustard recipe with success. Thank you!

      Hi, Corinna! When I was developing this recipe, I tested a version with plain greek yogurt. It produces a sharp tang that we didn’t love, which doesn’t mean that you won’t, but we preferred the mayo version. Good luck!

      Hi, Corinna! You can substitute greek yogurt for mayo, but it will change the flavor. When I was developing this recipe I tested a version with yogurt, and we didn’t like it, which doesn’t mean that you won’t. For us, it threw off the balance of sweet and tangy we wanted in the dressing. Good luck!

    I think it’s great! It’s the same recipe that my Mother made but she added a cut up hard boiled (or two) eggs to it. I love it on a lettuce wedge. Thanks for your delish recipes.

    This was perfect! I don’t like buying bottled dressings, but I had a craving for Thousand Island on my salad. I added just a teaspoon more ketchup. Never even occurred to me that the secret sauce in a Big Mac was Thousand Island. No wonder I love it!

      Hi, Lisa! I’m so glad you like the dressing! Thanks for letting me know.

    Thank you for this recipe! I have been making my own 1000 Island Dressing for years, and this recipe is pretty close to how I make it. I also add garlic powder, omit the salt, and instead of lemon juice, I use vinegar and enough sugar to get that ‘tang’. So much better than store-bought!
