Thousand Island Dressing

Makes about 2 cups

Introduced at The Thousand Islands Inn in upstate New York around the turn of the last century, Thousand Island was created by the innkeeper's wife, a certain Sophia Lalonde. Ms. Lalonde shared the recipes with guests, one of them the actress May Irwin, who in turn shared it with George Boldt, owner of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Boldt persuaded his maitre d' to serve it in the hotel dining room, and from there the dressing was introduced to the world.

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup bottled chili sauce or ketchup
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 hard-boiled egg

1. In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, chili sauce, pickle relish and lemon juice.
