Low Carb Thousand Island Dressing

This low carb simple thousand island dressing definitely gave me a “a-ha moment”!  It is easy to make and ridiculously delicious! Awesome on burgers or salads or as a veggie or meat dip.  Get yourself some large lettuce leafs and make a low carb big mac!  This recipe makes about 1 cup of dressing.  Each tablespoon of dressing has only a trace amount of carbs (less than 1 gram).
