Russian dressing is a salad dressing invented in Nashua, New Hampshire, by James E. Colburn, likely in the 1910s.[1][2] (Colburn first named his experiment Russian mayonnaise, labels for which are today in the possession of collectors.[citation needed]) 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.[3][4]

A variation is known as red Russian dressing, is very much like Catalina / French Dressing.

In The Simpsons episode The Fabulous Faker Boy, a Russian character claims that everyone in Russia cheats, confessing that "even Russian dressing is just Thousand Island."
