Russian Dressing

Russian dressing is a salad dressing invented in Nashua, New Hampshire, by James E. Colburn, likely in the 1910s. (Colburn first named his experiment Russian mayonnaise, labels for which are today in the possession of collectors.) Typically piquant, it is today characteristically made of a blend of mayonnaise and ketchup complemented with such additional ingredients as horseradish, pimentos, chives and spices.
