Make your own fresh horseradish sauce with horseradish roots from the garden, and a few simple ingredients to make this tasty condiment.
Creamy horseradish sauce is a favorite in our house. Especially with a pot roast that can be somewhat on the dry side. Of course, most think of it with roast beef.
Though I don’t make it very often, I do like to serve a nice horseradish sauce on the side when making prime rib.
I’ve used this with pot roast, pork roast, lamb, pork chops and roast beef. However, you could use it for anything you like. As a veggie dip or a dressing for tuna salad. The options are vast. It just depends on what you prefer.
Fresh Horseradish Sauce
Recently my daughter brought me some real horseradish root from the student garden where she is studying for her M.S. degree in plant biology.
I have never seen this in the store or at a market. Usually, I just use the jarred horseradish for this kind of recipe, but I was thrilled to have this organic fresh from the garden source.
Many people use sour cream to make a fresh horseradish sauce but I use mayo.
I also added a little fresh lemon juice. It’s often my “go-to” for a nice bit of acid and freshness.
All in all, it’s a very simple recipe.
However, I think you may agree that when you are using fresh ingredients, simple recipes are the best.
- 3 tablespoons fresh grated horseradish
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Clean and grate horseradish root
- Combine grated horseradish, mayo, lemon juice, and salt together in a small bowl.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
You can substitute prepared grated horseradish root from a jar.
