Simple Mayonnaise and Horseradish Saucecomments (4) March 30th, 2011
Makes about 3/4 cup
1/2 cup good-quality mayonnaise
2 to 3 tablespoons fresh-grated or prepared horseradish
1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons coarse or whole-grain mustard
1 large clove garlic, pressed or finely-minced or 1 fresh green garlic, minced
Squeeze fresh lemon juice, optional
This quick and easy sauce is made with just a few kitchen condiments that nearly everyone has on hand in their fridge and pantry. It is very tasty and I use it on an astonishing variety of foods. First off, I like to have it on hand for sandwiches, especially involving those with sharp cheddar cheese. Think vegetables and it will work on just about any of them—from steamed asparagus, artichokes, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, or cauliflower to vegetable crudités of any kind—and of course baked, steamed or French-fried potatoes. If you have it, you will use it.
In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients and blend well. Taste for seasoning and adjust with a bit more horseradish, mustard, or just a little lemon juice. The sauce tastes better if it is made at least 30 minutes before using. Store, tightly-covered, in the fridge for about 1 week.
