  • Blender


  • ¾ cups mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup Ketchup-style chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoon sour cream
  • 2 teaspoon Parsley chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Minced Onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced dill pickle
  • ½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon grated horseradish
  • ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


  • In a large food processor or blender, combine the mayonnaise, chili sauce, sour cream, parsley, onion, pickle, lemon juice, horseradish and Worcestershire sauce. Blend until well incorporated for 60 seconds.
  • Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.


  • Yield - This recipe yields 1 cup of Russian Sauce.
  • Chili Sauce - If you can't find ketchup-style chili sauce in the grocery store you can use ketchup instead.
  • Blender - If you don't have a high powered blender, you can use a food processor or simply a mortar and pestle to break down the onion and pickle then hand mix the sauce.
  • Spicy - If you like your Russian Dressing on the spicier side you can add in an additional 1-2 teaspoons of horseradish.
  • Storage - I like to use Weck Jars to store the sauce or even mason jars. Using an air-tight container is key to having the freshest sauce.
