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, yet has a little spicy kick.


Makes 1 1/2 cups of dressing.


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender, and process till smooth. The goal is to have a pink smooth sauce with little green flecks.
  2. Pour the sauce into a bowl and chill covered in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes prior to use.

Notes, tips and variations

  1. This is not the "traditional" recipe, but it is the easiest for untrained cooks to succeed at. For the traditional recipe, replace the salsa and ketchup with 1/2 cup chile sauce (or store bought chile sauce), and three tablespoons each of finely minced green onion and green chili peppers. Instead of using the blender, whisk the ingredients in a bowl.


  • Keep refrigerated
  • It is recommended that the dressing be used within 24 hours.
  • This recipe uses mayonnaise. See the module mayonnaise for possible health risks.
