Clean Thousand Island Sauce
If you have had In n Out at any point in your life (or yesterday if you are lucky), you have probably had their “special sauce”. It’s basically just thousand island dressing and it is AMAZING. I love it on burgers so a few weeks ago I whipped some up with what we had on hand and it was sooo delish!! It only takes 3 ingredients to get this clean thousand island sauce together and it will change you grilling game for good!
First start with some super clean mayonnaise – I love this & Tessemae’s Mayo! Then add some tomato paste and a chopped up pickle. That’s it!!! The key to this whole recipe is finding quality ingredients. Check your labels for no artificial flavors and colors. It is mind blowing how hard that can be. I only found one brand of pickles without added “yellow #5”. So take the extra time and look at those lists, it is sooo worth it!! Same with the mayo – most of them have TONS of ingredients but you can find a few with a very little ingredient lists that will rock your world.
So with that, I give you my fave new condiment!
Here is a sneak peek at the California Tuna Burger I will be posting this week! It went perfectly on these babies!
We know you are going to want to make a few more homemade dressings and sauces:
- 1/2 cup clean mayonnaise (I used Tessemaes)
- 1/4 cup chopped pickles (check ingredient list for no added artificial colors or flavors)
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- salt to taste
- Combine mayonnaise, chopped pickles and tomato paste in a bowl and stir to combine. Season with salt to taste. Enjoy on burgers!
