The invention of thousand island dressing is often attributed to Theo Rooms, a chef at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago when it opened in 1910. Other accounts hold that the thick, satisfying condiment was devised on one of the Thousand Islands, in the St. Lawrence River in Canada. This recipe is based on one used at the now defunct Filene’s Restaurant in Boston.
