Surprisingly, Russian dressing is not Russian; it's American. The dressing was first created in the early 1900s in Nashua, New Hampshire, by James E. Coburn.
A small amount of prepared horseradish flavors this easy Russian dressing. If you don't have chili sauce, feel free to substitute tomato ketchup or cocktail sauce. This version uses mayonnaise, unlike some bottled red versions which are similar to French dressing. For a vegan version, use vegan mayonnaise.
This combination makes a tasty salad dressing, but it can also be used as a dip or sandwich spread. Or use it in a recipe like this popular apricot glazed chicken for the slow cooker or this chicken Reuben casserole.
In a bowl combine the mayonnaise, chili sauce, chopped chives, pimiento, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, and paprika.
Add salt, to taste.
Store the dressing in the refrigerator for three to four days.
- Add a teaspoon of hot sauce, such as Texas Pete or Frank's to the dressing, or add a dash of ground cayenne pepper.
- Substitute 2 to 3 tablespoons of grated onion for the chopped chives.
- Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of finely chopped dill pickle.
- Add garlic powder, to taste, or finely minced fresh garlic.
