I absolutely loved this dressing the first time I made it's become my go to dressing for almost any type of salad and I think it works better with a Reuben than a traditional thousand island dressing. One thing that I've begun to do that makes it a little less strong on the harsh onion notes is to saute the onions, olives and jalapeƱos in the oil. It sweetens the onion a bit to keep the flavor but relieve a little of the harsh bite. It also adds a nice smoky flavor from the jalapeƱos being cooked which really brings the whole thing together. Hope it helps!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great recipe -- it's a way to eat a salad with a creamy, heavy dressing, without feeling guilty about fat and calories. It is quite oniony as written. We cut the amount of onion in half, and it still overpowered the dressing -- especially after it was allowed to sit for a few hours. I recommend using only a tablespoon or two of onion, or perhaps using scallion or shallot instead. Also, doubling the amount of tomato sauce makes it less "blond", and (in my opinion) more like thousand island. item not reviewed by moderator and published
