This Russian Dressing is creamy, tangy and slightly spicy with a mild kick of horseradish…the perfect condiment for a Reuben Sandwich and more!
Ok, What is Russian Dressing?
Russian dressing is a salad dressing that has a creamy, tangy, and slightly sweet flavor. It is made with a base of mayonnaise, horseradish, shallots, paprika, chili garlic sauce, and Worcestershire sauce…a perfect blend of sweet and savory flavors! It’s a versatile condiment that is great on a Reuben sandwich, on salads, as a dip for veggies, crab cakes or chicken wings. The possibilities are endless with this dressing!
What’s the Difference Between Russian Dressing and Thousand Island Dressing?
They do have some similar ingredients, but the addition of horseradish and cayenne pepper give Russian dressing a unique flavor profile that sets it apart from Thousand Island dressing. Thousand Island dressing is typically sweeter and has a slightly tangy flavor from the sweet pickle relish.
How To Make Russian Dressing
For full recipe details, see the printable recipe card down below. Here is what you can expect when making this recipe:
Combine Dressing Ingredients
In a small bowl, combine lemon juice, mayonnaise, chili garlic sauce, prepared horseradish, minced shallot, Worcestershire sauce, paprika and salt/pepper. Whip together until smooth. Place in the fridge until ready to use.
Make Ahead + Storing Russian Dressing
You can make Russian Dressing a day or two ahead of when you want to use it. Store dressing in an airtight container and in the fridge for up to 1-2 weeks. I don’t recommend freezing this dressing because it has mayonnaise. Freezing would change the texture to grainy and separate…aka not be very good.
