Delicious Salad w/Homemade Thousand Island Dressing




Sometimes I do crave a good salad. We always have Italian and Ranch dressing in our house since those are the popular ones. But I LOVE Thousand Island. I think I'm the only one too. My mom showed me this little trick one day when we were out of Thousand Island Dressing.

Lettuce
Carrots
Ham or Turkey Deli Slices
Bacon Bits
Mayo
Ketchup
Sugar
Relish (optional)






Make sure to wash up the vegetables thoroughly. Shred up or cut up Lettuce. Cut up Ham or Turkey Deli Slices into strips. Peel first layer of carrots. Use peeler on carrots to create "peel strips." Toss all on in a bowl. Dressing: Mix equal parts mayo to ketchup until pinkish in color. Add about a 1 tablespoon of sugar. My mom used to also mix a bit of relish into the dressing. Pour over your salad once the sugar dissolves evenly with the mixture. Serve with a side of garlic bread and top with Bacon Bits. This is definitely a delicious snack you don't have to feel guilty about!!

Consistency...

It is a cooking and baking term. But I am talking about myself. I want to be more consistent with my writing as a blogger on this site since its my blogger baby and as a guest blogger on @FatWallet. I do it to have fun and lately I haven't been feeling the greatest physically and mentally. I have fun with my family of course but even my husband says I've been acting strange. So this is my promise to this site, any of my readers (if they exist), and to myself to at least get a recipe or tips down at least once every week. And to send out a recipe to Heather @FatWallet at least once every other week.
