Russian Dressing

I must admit, I don’t eat a lot of Russian Dressing, at least not on salads…and I’m pretty sure it’s popular as a condiment, in some form, at fast food chains, so I’m not exposed to it much there, either.  But when I got a hold of some Wagyu cured beef not too long ago from the amazing, I was quickly on a quest to make the perfect Rueben sandwich, which naturally, I meant I needed to come up with the perfect Russian Dressing recipe.  As usual, it took a number of misses, until I found a version that I think hits it out of the park.  This has a bit of a kick to it, so if you don’t like things with a little spice, pull back on the chili sauce.  But this version compliments the Rueben sandwich beautifully.  Doesn’t overwhelm, but adds a flavor profile that is out of this world!  Both the Loon and I are now big fans of Russian Dressing!  Enjoy!!

This Russian Dressing has a nice kick and an incredible flavor profile. Use in salads, egg or chicken salad, and of course...deli sandwiches, such as a Reuben. Amazing!
