First let me say that I couldn't find Kraft Russian dressing.....I remember it, it was a red color. But I did find some Russian dressing by Ken's Steakhouse that was lighter in color. After tasting it, I found it was more like Thousand Island. So I searched recipezaar/food.com and found many recipes for "Russian dressing" that did have pickles in it. So I went ahead with the recipe. These chicken kabobs turned out delicious. Mine marinated for a full 4 hours. I did baste with the reserved marinade while grilling. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe! Made for PAC Fall 2011.
