Keto Thousand Island Dressing


Thousand Island Dressing

I did not set out to create a salad dressing, because I pretty much cannot stand salads, but I do eat them on occasion.

What prompted this recipe is that I wanted to create an interesting version of avocado fries.  Yep – you heard me right!  That recipe is coming soon, btw!

Traditional Thousand Island dressing was always my favorite when I was younger.  Followed closely by blue cheese. 

What better dipping sauce than a recreation of my previous favorite? So off I went to create the perfect keto Thousand Island Dressing!

The Flavors

Mayo – the main ingredient is mayonnaise.   I recommend using REAL mayo, not the “healthier” ones like avocado mayo. 

The reason is that there is often higher carbs in the non “real” mayo products.  And what’s better than real mayo?  

Dill Relish– Many recipes use sweet relish.  I did not.  I chose to use dill relish.  And honestly, I was going to get some dill pickles and blend one up. BUT, I am not a pickle eater and did not want the waste.  

So Dill Relish it was!

Apple Cider Vinegar – Just a tiny bit.  Just enough to give it a healthy vinegar kick.

Tomatoes – Many recipes use ketchup.  I opted against this.  I chose to use tomato paste and Rotel!  Rotel is basically petite diced tomatoes with a kick.  Super yummy!

A smidge of sweet – I opted for a few drops of liquid stevia to just barely give it a sweet component.  This is FAR from sweet, but it does add a great twist.

Kitchen Essentials

The fantastic thing about this recipe is that the only major kitchen device you need is a food processor. 

I use a Ninja and absolutely love it! I use it daily to make my morning Collagen Smoothie.  YUM!!! 

It has a ton of attachments for whatever I need.

The great thing about this thousand island recipe is that you throw it all in the food processor and mix it up!  That’s it!   


Is Thousand Island dressing high in carbs?

Definitely not this keto thousand island dressing!  It comes in at 1g of total carbs.  Not bad at all!  Traditional thousand island dressing made with high sugar ketchup will certainly be higher in carbs.  But that is why we have the keto version!

How can I use thousand island dressing?

Limitless possibilities!

You can use this as a dressing or as a dip, as I’ve mentioned.  It is versatile and the texture is smooth enough for anything! 

If you are a fan of dressing and dip combos, make sure to also make this Whole30 and Keto Ranch Dressing.  It is ALSO both a dressing and a dip!  FANTASTIC!



I would suggest using mostly the chunks from the Rotel in the measurement, rather than the liquid.  If you use too much of the liquid, it will make the sauce runnier than you might expect.  

Additionally, if you like a sweeter thousand island dressing, you can control this with the liquid stevia!
