Thousand Island Dressing

This thousand island dressing is easy to make and has so much more flavor than your average store-bought dressing.  We use it to make our own Reuben sandwiches, and it really completes the whole sandwich.  It is sweet and tangy with bursts of saltiness from the caper berries.  It only takes a few minutes to whip together and you use basic kitchen ingredients. You could really use it on any sandwich to add a gourmet spin on plain mayo & mustard.

3/4 cup mayonnaise, homemade or store-bought
1/4 cup ketchup or chili sauce
1 T dijon mustard
1 T minced caper berries (or capers)
1 T minced sweet pickles, such as pickled green beans or sweet baby gherkins
1 T finely chopped chives or green onion
1 T fresh lemon juice
dash of salt

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, and you're done!  Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

We made Reuben sandwiches with the last of our black caraway bread, and they were sooo tasty!
