Red Horseradish Sauce
Just what your gefilte fish is waiting for.
The Backstory: What a funny name for a sauce. Nowhere does a horse have anything to do with this sauce. Radishes do not need any explanation. The only logic that I can think of is when the radishes were harvested some farmer probably said, “Look at the size of the radishes! They are as big as a horse!” Okay, that is all I could come up with, but imagine if it was compared to a house or a barn…you get the picture. More of the Backstory after the recipe…
- 2 tbsp. red horseradish (from a jar) horseradish can be substitued
- 2 cups plain yogurt fat free can be substituted
- 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
- 1/8 tsp. black pepper, divided
- 1/8 tsp. nutmeg optional
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Mix well. Check seasonings for taste. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
…The Backstory continues: But truth be told, as a small child, I would not taste horseradish because I thought that a horse actually had something to do with it. Ah, for the age of innocence again.
This sauce is delicious with vegetables, salads, and of course is a wonderful accompaniment to gefilte fish.
