How to Make Thousand and One Island Dressing
- Place all together in a bowl and mix well. (Note: I placed the pickle relish in a small sieve and pressed out some of the liquid). Place in fridge for a couple of hours to let the flavors meld.
- For a wonderful Reuben: For each sandwich: two slices Jewish rye bread. Butter once side of each and place under broiler until melted and lightly browned. Then on the untoasted side of one,slather with a TBSP or more of the 1000 Island dressing. Place about 1/3 of a pound of deli-quality corned beef on top.
- Take sauerkraut which has been placed in a sieve and drained and place on top, about 1/2 c on each top of the corned beef. Cover this with finely sliced good quality swiss cheese (I used Ementhaler). Place on a broiler pan. Turn off the oven from the broiling. Place the sandwiches in the oven to let the cheese melt and the meat to warm a bit. Slather the other slice of bread with more 1000 Island dressings and place on top, slice in half and enjoy.
