Can you use other low carb sweeteners for this homemade keto thousand island dressing recipe?
Absolutely. However, the one that you’ll notice on this ingredient list is one that we prefer to use. It’s great for all of our allergy needs and it doesn’t have a bad aftertaste like some of the other options available on the market.
What are some foods that go well with this homemade keto thousand island dressing?
The most obvious pairing is salad. My husband enjoys pairing this dressing with raw broccoli and raw cauliflower. Some other viable options are:
- Raw Veggies
- Airfryer Jicama Fries
A few days ago, I tried this dressing with a big plate of Air Fryer Keto Reuben Style Irish Nachos! The family LOVED it! Talk about a flavor sensation that will have you begging for more!
Everyone knows that this type of dressing tastes great on a Reuben sandwich, so it just makes sense that a little dollop here and there on your keto nachos would elevate the taste to new levels.
Although I’ve never tried it this way, my husband and many of his friends say it tastes great on a hamburger. This leads me to swap out other condiments for this keto dressing. It can be used in place of mayonnaise easily and potentially even ketchup or mustard for certain dishes.
Other recipes that would be a good pairing with this Keto Thousand Island Dressing are:
- Baked Potatoes – Seriously, it would be such a great topping in place of traditional sour cream.
- Air Fryer BBQ Bacon Onion Rings – You’d be able to just dip and dip and dip!
- Air Fryer Catfish – Try substituting this dressing in place of tartar sauce.
- Instant Pot Deviled Eggs – Try a little dollop of this dressing on top of a deviled egg.

How long will this Keto Thousand Island Dressing stay good for in the fridge?
As long as you put it in a tightly sealed container and store it in the fridge immediately when not in use, it should remain good for up to a month or so.
One other thing that I think is really important to point out is that you don’t ever want to dip a spoon, fork, or knife into the jar of dressing that has already been in yours or somebody else’s mouth. It’s more common than you think!
The reason for this is that the bacteria that are in our mouth are then transferred into the jar and that can be a potential breeding ground for the bacteria to grow. So just take my word for it and use a clean spoon every single time.
Homemade Keto Thousand Island Dressing (soy-free, gluten-free, low carb, keto)
This recipe as listed below will make 2 cups of dressing.
1 cup of soy-free Mayonnaise (I used Sir Kensington)
½ cup of Sour Cream
½ cup of Sugar-free Ketchup
¼ cup of finely chopped Red Onion
¼ cup of finely diced Red Bell Pepper
¼ cup of minced Dill Pickles
½ teaspoon of Onion Powder
½ teaspoon of Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon of Hot Sauce
Instructions to make Thousand Island Dressing
In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, ketchup, onion and garlic powder and pyure sweetener. Whisk well.
Add the diced red peppers, onion, and minced pickles and fold it in.
Store it in a clean, dry glass jar in the refrigerator. It should stay good for about a month.
In place of dill pickles, feel free to use sugar-free relish.
See, didn’t I tell you that this recipe was crazy simple? In fact, it’s literally just a few steps. I don’t know many recipes out there that are soy-free, gluten-free, low-carb, and Keto that take a few minutes to make and be ready to eat shortly after!
What is the difference between Thousand Island dressing and Russian dressing?
It’s actually mostly about the pickles! Russian dressing doesn’t have any type of pickles added into it while they’re one of the biggest stars of the show for the Thousand Island dressing. The Russian dressing is also usually a different color as well.
Can the hot sauce be left out of this dressing recipe?
For sure. If you’re not interested in having the hot sauce in the recipe, just go ahead and leave it out. Just keep in mind that if you do, it will alter the recipe and taste.
If you’re looking for a super simple salad dressing recipe that is low-carb and keto-friendly, you’re going to want to keep this on your radar and in your fridge at all times!
