Louis dressing is a salad dressing commonly used with seafood salads, such as Crab Louis and Shrimp Louis. It can also be used as a dip or sandwich spread, or many other uses. The dressing is creamy but has a little spicy kick.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

For 1 ½ cups of dressing:

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  2. Pour the sauce into a bowl and chill covered in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes prior to use.

Instead of using the blender, whisk the ingredients in a bowl.
  • Keep refrigerated
