I never needed a Russian dressing recipe until I started making my own Reuben sandwiches.  Now I cannot live without a jar of this creamy salad dressing in my fridge. I don’t order creamy salad dressing in restaurants and I only make vinaigrettes or sweet dressings at home, like my Aunt Dee’s dressing.  But now that I have this recipe I have changed my ways and I love this dressing on salads and sandwiches. These two creamy dressings are so similar that all I do is add some sweet pickle relish to this recipe to turn Russian dressing into Thousand Island dressing. Ingredients: ¼ cup sugar 3 tablespoons water 1 cup mayonnaise (not a low fat version) ½ cup ketchup juice of 1 lemon, 2 to 3 tablespoons 1 tablespoon vinegar (rice vinegar if you have it) ½ teaspoon salt 1½ teaspoon celery seed 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce ¼ cup of grated onion Add 2 tablespoons of sweet pickle relish for a thousand island dressing Optional: 1 tablespoon capers 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped Just combine all these ingredients together well.  No need to beat them, just stir them together. This is one of my very few recipes that really does improve itself by sitting in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.  The flavors will develop and not be overpowered by the Worcestershire.  The color will change a little too, and become a little pinker.  So don’t tinker and add more ketchup until you chill this dressing for a couple of hours. Then just add it to your favorite salad or spread it on a sandwich and enjoy!
