1000 Island Dressing  
This is all approximate because I make it by sight. So I recommend tasting as you go....

1 cup mayo
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tsp pickle relish
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

If it tastes a but tart add some Sweet Pickle Juice. That always helps. When doubling or tripling, I suggest tasting the mix and adjusting as you go.

Thanks, Rees, for taking the time to post this recipe. I have all the ingredients though I'm not entirely sure what pickle relish is. I will go look it up but it sounds like an American condiment.

I think relish is a American condiment. Pickle juice would probably be sufficent.

LOL...pickles are American too, if you mean the cucumber thingies in jars like the ones in McDonald's burgers?

Oh guess I've lived a sheltered life. You can probably makes pickles but then you are going way out of your way to make 1000 Island Dressing. I would look up pickle making on the net. I can't believe pickles are American. I had no idea. I'm not even a big fan of pickles but that just seems wrong.

Thanks muchly! The British tend to have pickled onions, pickled beetroot, pickled eggs! But not gherkins. There's lots of different chutneys and there's Branston pickle, which is like a relish...

Well pickle them gherkins! LOL... I gather from reading you can do without the pickles but it isn't the same.
