Thousand Island Dressing

This is the best tasting thousand island dressing I ever tasted.  Everyone that tries it raves about it.  It is very simple to make from ingredients you probably have on hand.  Do not substitute relish for the sweet pickles, the flavor of the relish is overpowering. You can substitute low fat mayonnaise if you wish.

1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup minced sweet pickles
1/4 cup chili sauce
4 green olives with pimentos, minced
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
1 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Whisk all of the ingredients until smooth. The dressing can be refrigerated for up to 4 days.
