Hi ! I hope you can help. There was a restaurant in Salem OR “Colonial House.”
They made their own Thousand Island dressing. After closing the restaurant, they
continued to make and sell at our local IGA grocery store. I would love to get
my hands on this recipe! Hope you can help. And thank you !!
I found several nostalgic mentions of the "Colonial House Restaurant" in Salem, OR, but not even a mention of their thousand island dressing, much less a recipe for it.
There are a couple of Facebook pages dedicated to Salem, Oregon nostalgia, and the Colonial House Restaurant is mentioned on both of them. If anyone at all has the recipe and visits those sites, then they might respond if you post your request there:
Memories of Salem, Oregon in the 70's/80's
You Know You're From Salem, Oregon When....
Also, this person lists the Colonial House in Salem, Oregon as a place that he worked. He worked in the kitchen there, so he might know the dressing recipe. Post your request on his page and he might be able to help:
Richard Fisher - former employee of Colonial House
I will post this on my site for reader input.
