Homemade Russian Dressing


Who knew it could be so simple to avoid the dressing aisle at the grocery store?

You can actually make all the classic salad dressings from scratch, with ingredients you probably keep on hand in your pantry, for a fraction of the cost.

And of course, you’ll be making a much healthier version!

Russian Dressing?  Homemade?  But it’s pink?  And has little chunks of something unidentifiable and yummy in it?

We’ll get to the bottom of it!


First, you’ll need 1/2 cup of mayonnaise,


scooped into a jelly or mason jar,


add 2 tablespoons of relish (That was fast! The mysterious “chunks” are revealed…Pickles!),


then 2 tablespoons of ketchup,



1 tablespoon sugar,


and put a lid on it.


Shake, shake, shake…till you find yourself with a homemade PINK dressing!


Add about 1 teaspoon kosher salt, mix again and taste.  Add more if desired.


Toss with a beautiful salad and enjoy the wonder in everyone’s faces when you explain that you made Russian dressing from scratch!

Bon Appétit, Ma Chérie!
