My Mother made Russian Dressing regularly…. Although her recipe differs slightly from the one I’ve been using in recent years.. the overall taste is very similar… I like my Russian Dressing with a little bite to it… and have added a bit of horseradish to my recipe as well as sour cream and a little pickle relish…. She always chopped hard-boiled egg into hers… I didn’t add it to this recipe.
This recipe is a slight variation to the famous Zingerman recipe… I used shallots instead of onion… I used sweet pickle relish instead of dill pickle… I used only a few drops of hot sauce and a splash of Worcestershire Sauce otherwise the recipe is pretty much the same as theirs.
Most recipes use onion.. I use a shallot… I like the taste of shallots better.. they aren’t as strong in flavor as onions… you can use either.
I used horseradish sauce instead of straight horseradish… the sauce has a smoother flavor.. you can find it by the mustards or by the deli in the grocery store.
You can find chili sauce by the ketchup in the grocery store… I use Heinz brand.
I use Hellman’s Real Mayonnaise… I don’t recommend you use salad dressing.
I use curly parsley not Italian flat parsley for this.
This recipe is so easy and so good.. after tasting it.. you won’t buy it again.
