Thousand Islands Dressing

Owner of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel and Boldt Castle, George Boldt was first served this Salad Dressing aboard his yacht. He loved it so much he started serving it in his hotels and restaurants naming it after this area!

1,000 Islands Dressing 

1 qt Mayonnaise
1/2 C. Chopped Olives
3/4 C. Sweet Relish
1/4 C. Vinegar
3 Hard Boiled Eggs
1/4 C. Worcestershire 
Dash of Ground Cloves
1/2 C. Diced Red Pepper
1 t. Sugar

There are no instructions. I think we're lucky to have this much. Notice that there is NO KETCHUP! Also notice that the olives are chopped, the red pepper is diced and the pickles are relish. Those I would not blend into it with the blender unless you've been served this very dressing and you know that the authentic recipe is made that way. 
Is the original dressing pink? If it is then blend in the red bell peppers. This is as good as I can figure it!
