Recipes with Horseradish

Green Horseradish Cream

You can add as much grated horseradish as you desire so that this can be relatively mild or fiery hot. Use this creamy sauce as a dip for crudites or as a spread for bruschetta or as an alternative for mayonnaise. Try it as an accompaniment for cooked vegetables, poultry or fish. Recipe by Pat Crocker.

Makes about 1 cup

About 1 cup of fresh green herbs:
Thyme, sage, rosemary
French sorrel, dock or spinach

1 or 2 costmary leaves (they are bitter)
1/2 cup yogurt cheese
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons grated horseradish

Optional ingredients
2 apples, grated
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Using a mezzaluna or a blender, chop the green herbs until they are minced fine.

In a bowl, combine chopped green herbs, yogurt cheese, whipping cream and horseradish and stir to blend.

Add optional ingredients if desired. Store in the refrigerator and use within 2 or 3 days.
