Fact: Homemade salad dressings are better. They are fresh, lively, and easy to customize. This is especially true when it comes to the oft-maligned classic, Thousand Island dressing — yes, I mean that pink dressing on the salad bar in the giant squeeze bottle.

The alchemy transforms the dressing into a tamer of the bitterest of greens; it's also a frequent partner for crisp iceberg lettuce, and the true identity behind the Big Mac's special sauce.
