Russian Dressing

Russian dressing is an American tomato-based salad dressing noted for its pungency. It is typically orange-red, burnt red, or pink in color.

History
Russian dressing was invented in the United States in the late 1800s or early 1900s.

Some claim that the dressing's name originated in the fact that the condiment in those days typically included caviar, a food associated with Russia.

Ingredients
It may have a base of yogurt, mayonnaise, or ketchup, although the latter two ingredients are today more associated with Thousand Island dressing. Earlier historical recipes claiming to be Russian dressing usually do have a base of mayonnaise, and are in fact indistinguishable from modern Thousand Island dressing.
Ingredients may also include horseradish, pimentos, chives and various additional spices.

The clearness that has come to be associated with Russian dressing may be owed to the fact that early recipes for it sometimes included gelatin or aspic.

Uses

  • Russian dressing is often the principal condiment used on Reuben sandwiches, although Thousand Island dressing is also used for that purpose.
  • Green salads with poached or hard-boiled eggs.
  • Raw spinach salads.
