Dressing Essentials: Rumbustious Russian Dressing

This is my recipe for Russian Dressing. It has many of the usual suspects, when it comes to ingredients, and one or two others that give it its distinct flavor.

A few years ago, I added some freshly chopped tarragon, and never looked back. But, tarragon is a distinctive spice, and some people do not like the taste of it, so I made it an optional ingredient.

I will just say this... If you like Russian dressing, you will LOVE this version.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Dressing Essentials: Rumbustious Russian Dressing

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. I am always attempting to make things homemade, and for this recipe, I am using several homemade items. If you are crazy, like me, you might want to check them out:

    In addition, I make my own mayo, but I do not think that I have posted it, yet.
  3. This recipe should last for 2 – 3 weeks in fridge. Just make sure it is in a tightly-sealed, non-reactive jar. So, make just enough to last for 2 or so weeks.
  4. I love the addition of the chopped tarragon; however, not everyone is a fan of that flavor, so I made it an optional item.
  5. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  6. Grind the dehydrated onions into a powder.
  7. Grate and mince the onion.
  8. Add all the ingredients together (except the salt), to a bowl, and whisk to combine.
  9. Add a bit of salt at a time, and then whisk and sample, until you achieve the desired taste.
  10. PLATE/PRESENT
  11. Seal tightly in a non-reactive jar, and keep in the fridge until ready for use. Enjoy
  12. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
