I have searched the internet far and near and finally I found a Russian Dressing recipe that ACTUALLY WAS Russian dressing! Good Stuff!
- 1⁄4 cup sugar (or honey)
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 cup catsup
- 2 -3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons celery seeds
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 cup grated onion (or 1/2 tbsp onion powder)
- In a sauce pan cook sugar and water until thick.
- Cool syrup.
- Combine the remaining ingredients.
- Add syrup and whisk to blend well.
This is very good even if it did take me two attempts to make it. 1st try, disaster. Cooked the sugar/water to long, turned into rock, thought I had to throw out pan and spoon. 2nd attempted cooked only 3 min. didn't care if it got thick or not, dressing turned out deliciously delicious. Followed the recipe to a T using finely chopped onions. Keeper for sure.
This was SOOOOO simple and very tasty! It's the very best Russian salad dressing I've had and I will NOT be buying the store bought stuff anymore. Thanks so much! Used 1/2 of it to make apricot glazed chicken.
Excellent and tasty. Although the fat content numbers are a bit frightening, I think that this in fact yields significantly more than 4 servings - there are close to 2 cups of liquid in this recipe, and to consume half a cup of dressing with a salad is a bit excessive. I find for side-salads, one gets about 10 to 12 servings from this recipe, so the fat does not look so bad now. It also works well if the oil is reduced somewhat - removing about a third of the oil has little effect on the taste. I've made it several times and will definitely make it again.
