not Russian dressing dressing

There have been more sandwiches being made around here then there have been in many years.  It has to do with my statement that if we ate more of our own food then out food, we could travel more.  Even when traveling, if I make sandwiches I can go farther.  I ate groceries on my grocery budget for both Estes Park and Utah.

Saying that, my Beloved asked for me to make a Russian dressing.  He likes Ruebens.  Me?  I am not a big mayonnaise or mayonnaise dressing fan.  I like Caesar, which is a basic mayonnaise and I like chipolte aioli which is not.  One for salads.  One for tacos.  Russian dressing?  Not me.  But that does not mean I will not figure something out.  

I did do my normal "what is there in the kitchen" for this one instead of going to the store for supplies.  I followed the recipe for Zingerman's Russian dressing as a starting spot.  It seemed most authentic.  But then it got twisted.  Homemade pickles.  Asian chili sauce and wasabi because that is what I had.  This dressing can kick you in the teeth.

not Russian dressing

1 egg

3/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup asian chili sauce

1 tablespoon minced yellow onion

1 tablespoon minced pickles (I think they were dill)

1/2 teaspoon dry wasabi powder

1/4 teaspoon worchester sauce

Put everything but the olive oil and pickles in a bowl.  Blend a bit with an immersion blender.  Slowly dribble (very slowly, I have been going to quickly and having aoilis break) in the olive oil and blend the whole time.  Once all the oil is added, mix in the pickle.  Blend for about 30 seconds more.  A bit of pickle chunk left is wanted.

Happy boyo!  Dressing for his sandwiches and lettuce wraps.
