Homemade Russian Dressing

Since the beef stroganoff I made earlier this week was a Russian-inspired recipe, I decided to use that as the theme for this week’s recipe. Hence today’s Homemade Russian Dressing recipe, even though Russian dressing is an American invention. I do love the stuff on a good old-fashioned Rueben sandwich, but I’m not sure I’ve ever actually had it on a salad. The husband and I are trying very hard to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into our diet, and salad dressing is a great excuse for that.

This Homemade Russian Dressing is the best I have ever had. It is creamy, tangy, and way better than anything you can find in a store!

The Ingredients

There aren’t a ton of ingredients for this dressing recipe, and nothing was hard to find or particularly expensive. In fact, all I had to pick up was the chili sauce. (I love it when my grocery lists are super short!) And no worries about it being too hot, even though it has ‘chili’ in the name. It’s very mild and not at all like hot sauce, which is what came to mind when I read the name.

Homemade Russian Dressing Ingredients
Mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, red wine vinegar, chili sauce, dill pickles, sugar, garlic powder, paprika, and black pepper

The Process

There is absolutely no cooking involved in this recipe, and I had it ready in only 6 minutes. It was just a matter of blending most of the ingredients, adding the chopped pickles, and letting it sit in your refrigerator for a few hours. I used my mini-prep to blend the dressing, and it was just the right size. It’s a great convenience if you have one, but a regular blender would be just fine if you don’t.

So how was it?

Clear & Accurate Directions
Sweet and tangy Russian dressing is so easy to make and far tastier than bottled salad dressing. Just blend the ingredients, mix in some chopped dill pickle, and refrigerate for a few hours. And it's made with pantry staples, so you may not need to purchase any of the ingredients.
