Thousand Island Dressing for Shrimp Salad

thousand-island3My mother was a working woman. Her interest was not primarily cooking. That was left pretty much to me. When she did cook she had her favorites and this Thousand Island dressing is one of them.

This dressing is one of hers that has become my families traditional Thousand Island go to.

Originally the recipe came from a friend of hers that worked for a very successful San Francisco sea food restaurant. It was the dressing that went on their Shrimp Louie salads.

For me it is solely reserved for shrimp salad because I am not much of a fan for sweet on a regular vegetable with lettuce salad.

I will not bother with a recipe for the salad itself because I simply cut up romaine, celery, radish, tomato, cucumber and onion. Add a bunch of cooked shrimp. The big ones that are deveined, shelled but with the tail shell left on.

This salad base is something I make up and keep in the frig. for 3 or 4 days until it is gone. Romaine keeps a long time if you buy it very fresh and use it right away.

I simply cut all of the ingredients up in a very large spaghetti bowl cover with saran wrap then store in my outside refrigerator. From that I take whatever amount I want for the days salad either for the family or as individual servings. It is my handy time saver.

For shrimp salads I make individual bowls for each person. They then can add the amount of dressing they want to their salad. Not everyone likes the same amount of dressing I find.
