Russian Dressing RecipeIf there's a sandwich more delicious than corned beef and cole slaw on rye bread with Russian dressing, I've certainly never tasted it. And while the genius of putting cole slaw on the sandwich can't be overstated, it's the Russian dressing that makes it all work.
You could definitely make this Russian dressing with store-bought mayonnaise. It's quicker, and because store-bought mayo is pasteurized, your Russian dressing will keep longer in the fridge. But if you really want to taste something special, try making it with homemade mayonnaise.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- ¼ cup (4 Tbsp) chili sauce, cocktail sauce or ketchup (see note below)
- 1 Tbsp drained horseradish
- 1 tsp minced onion
- In a glass bowl, combine the mayonnaise and other ingredients. Chill.
- Store unused portion in the refrigerator, where it should keep for a day or two — or longer if you used store-bought mayonnaise.
Note: The ingredients listed above call for ¼ cup of either chili sauce, cocktail sauce or ketchup. Chili sauce and cocktail sauce are just variations on ketchup, and Heinz makes the definitive versions of each one. I prefer to use chili sauce for my Russian dressing, because I like it to have a little kick.
