Homemade Russian Dressing

2013-04-21 17.42.42


I love Russian Dressing. It is one of those salad dressings that I will always choose if a restaurant has it. Recently, my husband and I went to dinner with some friends at a local restaurant that makes it own Russian dressing. I started to think I could do this at home as well. How hard could it be? Turns out, not that hard at all.

Russian dressing is a creamy, tangy dressing, similar to thousand island dressing. If you like thousand island, you should try this recipe. You probably have all the ingredients to make it in the fridge.

1 cup mayo (I use Hellmans)
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Taste the dressing. If it is too tart for your liking, add a bit more mayo.
