Russian dressing is a salad dressing invented in Nashua, New Hampshire, by James E. Colburn, likely in the 1910s. 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. It is unknown in authentic Russian cuisine.
A variation is known as red Russian dressing, and is very much like Catalina / French Dressing.
