Tortuga Island Salad Dressing is very close the original, AUTHENTIC Thousand Island Dressing... the dressing you won't find in any grocery store. I've substituted white sugar with brown sugar, plain Vinegar with Red Wine Vinegar and added red onions instead of chopped red peppers.
I chose the name "Tortuga Island" because that's one of my favorite fishing spots in the Sea of Cortez. Tortuga is Spanish for "Turtle"... like the little swimming Olive bits. ;-)
VERY tasty and so easy to make. If you're a 1000 Island fan... you might just like this homemade version better!
