Broccoli Salad Homemade Thousand Island dressing just takes a few minutes to make, yet the flavor of homemade exceeds even the best bottle of store-bought.

Traditional versions of this dressing frequently include a hardboiled egg, but I omitted it for two reasons. First, my taste testers preferred the egg-free version the least out of the four I prepared. Second, even when combined with other components, hardboiled eggs have a strong odor that overpowered the dressing. I discovered a couple recipes that utilize plain yoghurt instead of mayo online. I tried it as well, but when it comes to Thousand Island dressing, I think mayo is the way to go. This is a very sweet dressing that is usually used to balance off the harshness of certain salad greens. With that in mind, the sharpness of plain yoghurt overpowers the sweetness of the dressing.
