Ok here’s the deal.
The next three posts are all connected. These next two recipes are both components of the final product, so you have to make both of them before you’re ready for the final product.
We’re not going to tell you what the final recipe is, but we think if you put your detective skills to the test, you just might be able to figure it out ;)
And trust us, you want to make these recipes, because the final product will blow you away! Thats how delicious it is.
So, first up, we bring you this dressing:
Classic Thousand Island Dressing.
Generally we are not big fans of dressing like this for a salad. We’re more vinaigrette kind of gals (or a creamy tahini dressing works too, of course!). In fact, neither of us can remember the last time we had Thousand Island dressing.
And you know what? We’ll probably never buy Thousand Island dressing again. Not when it’s this easy to make!
And we may be a little biased, but we’re pretty positive that this stuff id better than the store-bought variety anyways, and of course its much healthier! :)
So that’s it for today, but please, please go make this right. now. We promise you’ll thank us in the end, if you don’t thank us for this delicious dressing right of the bat ;)
Oh, and if you’ve already guessed what the final product is, shh… don’t tell anyone- we wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise! :)
