Russian Dressing is usually made with spicy ketchup which isn’t a readily available ingredient in some locations. Sriracha works a treat as a sub, otherwise, use ketchup + tabasco to taste. It’s like a spicier version of Thousand Island Dressing – should be mildly spicy mayo with a touch of sour from the horseradish paste and chilli sauce.
