What is the difference between the Russian dressing and the dressing of the thousand islands?
While both toppings have distinctive flavor profiles, thousands of island toppings are much more versatile because they can be used for more than just a salad dressing. The Russian dressing is more tomato based and has a finer, smoother consistency. It is also a bit more spicy because it requires horseradish and paprika. Russian dressing is great for ready-made salads (and perfect for my Dorito Taco Salad), but it's not as popular as the sweetest island dressing for Reuben burgers or sandwiches.
