Thousand Island dressing is an American classic. It is a mayonnaise based dressing that is sweet and tangy. It’s wonderful on burgers and makes for an incredible Big Mac Salad. However, most store bought bottles of Thousand Island dressing can have close to 5 grams of sugar per serving!

This recipe for Low Carb Thousand Island dressing utilizes alternative sweeteners rather than real sugar and sources low carb ketchup. So you don’t need to waste your valuable carbs on a bottled salad dressing.

Low Carb Ketchup

Regular ketchup can have around 5 g of carbohydrates per tablespoon. This can add up to a lot of unnecessary carbohydrates if you are a ketchup lover. There are brands out there who are starting make low sugar ketchup. My favorite is by Primal Kitchen. Their ketchup contains real ingredients and has 1 g carb per serving.

If you can’t find a low carb ketchup, you could sub in 2 teaspoons of tomato paste or a tablespoon of tomato sauce to make this keto thousand island dressing.

Storing Homemade Thousand Island Dressing

Keto thousand island dressing dressing can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. Put the dressing in a squeeze bottle or air tight container.

This way you don’t have to worry about wasting your homemade dressing. This is a great keto meal prep option. It’s a easy dressing to make up on Sunday while you are prepping all of your keto meals or salads for the week. Store in the refrigerator until you want to use it!

One meal prep tip is to make up a bunch of mason jar salads and store them in the refrigerator. Add the sugar free thousand island dressing to the mason jar in the morning and take it with you to work. It makes a tasty keto salad to eat on the go while you are at work!

Make Thick Thousand Island Dressing

If you are looking for a thick Thousand Island dressing, you can achieve this by mushing a hard boiled egg through a fine mesh sieve or using a food processor. This will give a thick and creamy keto thousand island dressing without adding flours or other thickeners that have carbs.

Using the egg will enhance the flavor of the dressing as well as help thicken it.
