My homemade thousand island dressing uses hard cooked eggs and store bought mayo.

Homemade mayo is dangerous if raw eggs are used. You can use pasteurized eggs (refrigerator or frozen) as a safe alternative.

Commercially prepared mayo... this is safe since pasteurized products are used.

I use mayo. The eggs are set in lemon juice, vinegar and salt, which "pickles" the eggs and helps kill bacteria before they are used in the mixture. Also, pasteurized eggs are always used, which do not contain bacteria and almost unlikely for you to get sick from them. This applies to salad dressings as well.

You can look up recipes for thousand island dressing though, and they mostly all use cooked egss, maybe make your own if you are worried about it.
