Russian Salad Dressing from Food.com: Couldn't find it premade, so I may just have to make my own. Healthier that way too, I'm sure. I have searched the internet far and near and finally I found a Russian Dressing recipe that ACTUALLY WAS Russian dressing! Good Stuff!
Russian dressing and Thousand Island dressing are often confused because both begin with a base of mayonnaise and ketchup or ketchup-style chili sauce, which results in a pink salad dressing. But where Thousand Island is a bit sweet and studded with pickle relish, Russian dressing is on the spicier side, with a hint of heat from horseradish and hot sauce.
