This spicy, creamy sauce is made with freshly grated horseradish root. Be prepared: grating the horseradish is the hardest part! After that, it’s easy-peasy and super delicious. Perfect for burgers, roast beef sandwiches, egg sandwiches, grilled cheese…. Or spread it on some crackers for a quick snack!


Horseradish Sauce

  • Author: Wolff's Apple House


  • About ½ pound fresh horseradish (1 cup grated)
  • 2 Tbs white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbs sour cream
  • ½ Tbs mayonnaise (optional)


  1. Peel the horseradish root and grate until you have 1 cup. If you have a cuisinart with a grating attachment, it will be much easier. But it’s do-able by hand.
  2. Combine the grated horseradish, vinegar, salt, and sour cream and blend well. At this point it will be creamy but a little watery. If you’d like it to be thicker, add the mayonnaise.
  3. Let sit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours at least before serving.
  4. Lasts up to a week in a sealed container in the fridge.
