We originally made this dressing to go on our Food Truck Reuben, but it tastes so good that we end up using what is left for several other purposes. This can of course be used for a salad dressing, but also makes a great veggie dip or spread for sandwiches and burgers. You might be able to find a bottled dairy and soy free Russian dressing, but this is really fast and easy and is made of ingredients that we always have on hand at our house. The only “unusual ingredient” that others may not have on hand is the coconut aminos. This is a substitute for soy sauce, and we always have a bottle on hand for recipes that call for a small amount. It may not be available at all grocery stores, but it’s not an item that we have to buy frequently since a bottle lasts so long.
Homemade Russian Dressing (Dairy and Soy Free)
About 2 Tbsp Fresh Onion
1 cup canola Mayonnaise (or another dairy and soy free variety)
¼ cup ketchup
2 tsp grated horseradish (or to taste)
1 tsp Frank’s Original Hot Sauce
1 tsp Coconut Aminos
¼ tsp paprika
Pinch of Salt
Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
