Russian dressing is that ubiquitous orange-hued spread that accompanies any good Reuben sandwich. Despite the name, the condiment actually calls Nashua, New Hampshire home, according to CNN.
The traditional ketchup and mayo combination gets an upgrade from chef Richard Chudy, who adds cornichons and Dijon mustard to the spread. Here’s how to make Russian dressing for your next sandwich, salad or dipping-sauce experience.
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons cornichons or pickles, chopped
- 1/2 onion, finely diced
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper, to taste
