Thousand Island Dressing

Thousand Island dressing is a variety of salad dressing most commonly made of, primarily, mayonnaise, ketchup, and a mixture of finely chopped vegetables, most often pickles, onions, bell peppers, and/or green olives; chopped hard-boiled egg is also common. 

Thousand Island, a variant of Russian dressing, was invented in the first decades of the 20th century by Sophia LaLonde.  LaLonde substituted mayonnaise for the yogurt used in Russian dressing, and added pickle relish, chives and sometimes chopped, hard-boiled eggs.

The dressing was popularized by one of her dinner guests, actress May Irwin, who gave the condiment its name, after LaLonde's home, the Thousand Islands region of upstate New York and Eastern Ontario.

An alternate tale is that the name refers to the multitude of small specks that dot the dressing.

Thousand Island dressing has been cited in print since at least 1912.  The dressing was very popular in Chicago.  One theory is that the dressing was invented at Chicago's Blackstone Hotel in 1910.
