I know I've seen it for sale in the past, but had never bought any.
I could not find even one single, solitary bottle even in the artisanal area.
So, I looked it up in my cookbooks.
Do you have any idea how many versions there are of Russian Dressing?
Everyone agreed on a few basic points. You needed mayonnaise, either ketchup or chili sauce, some horseradish, onion and some kind of pepper or hot sauce. I found the ultimate discussion here. Really, I had no idea there were so many versions out there.
1 cup Mayonnaise
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon finely minced onion
4 tablespoons Horseradish Sauce - I used Inglehoffer Creamstyle Horseradish Sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Sambal Oelek
1/2 teaspoon Israeli Paprika
Mix together and place in fridge for an hour to let the flavors get acquainted.
I had to stop tasting it, cause I really liked the flavor profile.
I'm going to keep the ingredients on hand because this was lovely, and I think it would be totally awesome on a Reuben Sandwich.
I think I need to fish that Corned Beef out of the freezer and make me a sandwich, soon.
