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 variationsEdit

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