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.
I looked for a recipe for Russian Dressing because I couldn't find it at the grocery store and needed it for a recipe (Amy's Apricot Chicken). Very easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand. I used minced dried onion (too lazy to mince my own) and it turned out great.
AWESOME!! Tastes just like Kraft Russian Dressing, why buy it when I can make it myself so easily with inredients almost always on hand? Thanks for posting :)
Hey btcats! I made miss annies#34564 Russian Tea Room dressing I served 60 people and it was a great hit.....try it rosamaria
I think the author of this recipe should learn the difference between Russian Dressing and Thousand Island Dressing. There is no sugar or honey in real Russian Dressing but there could be in Thousand Island Dressing, which is what this recipe more closely resembles (less the pickle relish). Russian dressing should be tangy not sweet (where's the Horse Radish and Chilli Sauce). This is a common mistake among many amateur cooks!
I love your powercat but I also love this dressing. I also make it to go into a dish called cranberry chicken and it is nice to be able to make it from scratch. Thanks!
I've been searching for a Russian dressing close enough to my mom's recipe. I could recall many of the ingredients were the same as yours; the recipe tastes VERY close to my childhood memories. The only addition needed was a simple dash of pepper. Thank you for sharing!
I believe one of the major ingredients for Russian Salad Dressing is CAVIAR. It is the caviar that makes it Russian. I do not see it in the list of ingredients.
