Here’s What You Need For This Low Carb Thousand Island Dressing:​

Recipe Notes:

We’d like to note that you should add apple cider vinegar and pickle juice to thin your dressing (and to taste!). We love a lot of pickle juice, so our dressing is quite runny. It tastes amazing. If you prefer a thicker dressing, simply scale back on the apple cider vinegar and pickle juice. It will thicken up in the fridge as it sits, so keep this in mind.

We’d also like to note that you can make this dressing up to a week in advance. It really does taste best if you make it 24 hours before using it and keeping it in the fridge. It will also thicken over time in the fridge.

Sweeteners: We advise sweetening this to taste! We like using SweetLeaf Stevia Clear drops because they are liquid, and they won’t crystallize in the fridge. They pack a lot of sweetness and you don’t have to use much. You can use whatever sweetener is your favorite, but a liquid will probably work best.

Let’s Make It!


Mince you pickles and onions very fine. Put your mayonnaise and tomato paste into a large bowl. Add in your onion and pickles.

Now, slowly add in your pickle juice, apple cider vinegar and sweetener to taste and to reach your desired sauce consistency. Keep in mind that the sauce will thicken overtime in the fridge, but that we do like our dressing to be a bit on the thin/runny side and full of pickle juice.

Next, add in your garlic powder, salt and pepper. Give the mixture a good whisk. 

Taste, and adjust seasonings as you wish. This will keep up to 7-10 days in the fridge. Enjoy it on a reuben skillet, or on this healthier cheeseburger salad.
