: Recently I heard that the Thousand Island Dressing actually orginated from the Thousand Islands in the Kingston area in Ontario, Canada. Just wonder if anyone out there knows if this is true or not and whether there is any proof or evidence to support the claim. Thanks.

I read that it was devised by a galley-chef on a luxury yacht. Didn't take a genius to stick tomato into mayonaise, did it? Probably like the sandwich - been done for years then somebody wanted the credit for it.
