Our Russian Dressing

3/17/2023 – Mary made this for Reuben Sandwiches we made with the Pastrami smoked for St. Patrick’s Day here. This prep was inspired by the recipe at Natasha’s Kitchen here but is much spicer. This is not our 1000 Island Dressing that can also be considered Russian Dressing.

  • ¼ cup Blue Plate mayonnaise
  • 1 ½ tsp chili sauce
  • ½ tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 heaping Tbsp creamy horseradish
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp onion, finely grated
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

She bought a bottle of Chili Sauce in the ketchup section of the store. It tasted like a slightly kicked-up ketchup. Next time try regular ketchup with a little cayenne.

After it had melded for a day or so it was much better.

Could also try adding more mayo, the grated onion, and minced garlic to our 1000 Island Dressing which is actually a Russian Dressing. The ratio above computes to 6.67:1 mayo to ketchup (chili sauce) as opposed to our 1000 island dressing which is 3:1.
