I have a confession to make. This weekend I put Kraft Thousand Island dressing on a spinach salad.

I'm sorry.

  1. I just lit a candle for you at my parish church. You may need to resort to an exorcism if this persists.

      I just scheduled a reconciliation with my parish priest.

    2. You should apologize.

      Spinach goes with Kraft Catalina dressing.

      1. Next thing you know and you'll be dabbing the corners of a Patty Melt into a little side dish of 1000 Island.

        Oh, did I say that out loud? :x

          Thousand Island is an acceptable condiment for a sandwich or French fries.

          1. re: jpc8015

            But I don't think it is acceptable for a hotdog.

                1. re: jpc8015

                  Pastrami, kraut, Swiss cheese, and Thousand Island on a hotdog? That is one big hotdog. ; )

                    I don't think there was pastrami on the one I had. I do remember it being awesome though.

                    1. re: jpc8015

                      No pastrami- that's what the hot dog is for.
                      Swiss, thousand island, kraut.

                      1. re: jpc8015

                        Every Reuban I've ever seen has pastramie in it.

                        1. re: John E.

                          It's not a reuben, it's a reuben hot dog.

                            I got that. I have seen Reuban hamburgers and they all had pastramie. (I'm mostly having a little fun with this, the same as the hotdog/sandwich thread.)

                            1. re: John E.

                              Maybe 'Reubans' always come with 'pastramie' :-D


            1. I grew up with bottle dressing.
              Mom never made a vinaigrette- her homemade dressing was actually Thousand Island.
              Ketchup and mayo.

              I always have bottle and jarred dressings.
              My current obsession is any and all Opa yogurt dressings.

              In fact, I think I'm going to need a 12-step program.

                You never heard of fresh bottled dressing...Good Seasons?..fresh water, oil, vinegar and a packet>>>>>

                1. re: PHREDDY

                  Bottled dressing? Not on my fresh salad! That ad just cracked me up (who knows why) a hundred years ago.

                    A loooong time ago! Although it is still made,
                    Damit...can't find my Cruet!

                2. re: monavano

                  I do enjoy the Opa ranch as a dip for veggies.

                  1. re: monavano

                    My favorite bottled dressing was Bob's Big Boy Blue Cheese.

                  2. Last time I actually put Thousand Island on my food, I was probably about seven, (50+ years ago) and I was distracted at the dinner table and poured it on my tuna casserole instead of my salad.
                    I was so embarrassed, I cried (I had three sisters - you can imagine their response!), and I haven't wanted it since.
                    Thank goodness that my mother (while trying not to laugh) dished me up a new plate of tuna casserole. I still like tuna casserole, though.
