Over Pesach I always serve this horseradish dressing with gefilte fish.
When we were in Wales I had the best horseradish sauce that I have ever tasted. I could eat horseradish raw and would do so if I could find this here where we live. In fact, I have only once seen horseradish in Somerset West. I took this photograph with my cell phone and used some of the horseradish that I bought to make chrain, a relish served traditionally with gefilte fish.
In Wales, my roast beef was served with horseradish sauce and it is the perfect accompaniment in my opinion! I so wanted to replicate the flavour of the horseradish when we got home and so I made this horseradish dressing. I used palm sugar as I am also busy experimenting with making sucrose free meringues and had grated a lot of palm sugar to use for that. You can use any sweetener of your choice. The store bought horseradish I have says ‘hot’ on the bottle but I find it to be still quite mild. My next aim is to try and grow my own horseradish, it I can just find some seeds.
- 5 g fresh tarragon leaves
- 100 g yoghurt
- 1 lemon, zest and juice
- 30 mls olive oil
- 10 mls horseradish sauce
- 10 mls ground palm sugar
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper to season
- Place the tarragon, yoghurt, lemon juice and zest, oil, horseradish and palm sugar into a blender
- Blend until completely mixed
- Season to taste

What’s funny is that I’m not a big fan of wasabi but I love mustard and horseradish! Thanks for this recipe Tandy! 😀
That is so interesting. I love all three 🙂
I have grown horseradish – Tandy – a couple of words of warning it has a very long tap root. Secondly when I came to process it the fumes were so potent that even chopping it in the food processor didn’t protect me – the fumes given off are like mustard gas! I ended up not been able to use it, unfortunately, as I love horseradish and had been so excited about having my own home grown! Anyway good luck:) and maybe someone else will have some useful tips on processing it.
The fumes are amazing! I have been grating some fresh horseradish for another recipe as it is in season right now. I will keep the long tap root issue in mind when planting some 🙂
I am positive I have seen fresh horseradish here before – just can’t think where. I will keep my eyes open for you and for seed.
Have a lovely day Tandy.
🙂 Mandy xo
Pick ‘n Pay have it at the moment Mandy. And thank you for looking for seeds for me 🙂
I love fresh horseradish although it’s very easy to underestimate its strength. To my surprise I have noticed that there a small bottles of freshly made horseradish sauce – Raifort – in the chiller section of our French supermarket.
I shall buy some next month when we are in France Roger 🙂
We all love hot horseradish too. My mum grows it so I will ask her about seeds & let you know!
Thank you Tanya, we looked while we were in the UK but maybe they were not in season 🙂
I’ve never thought to make my own horseradish dressing, but I love this idea!!
Horseradish really is delicious, isn’t it, Tandy? I’ve had it with roast beef many times and it’s hard to beat. I love the mix of hot and tangy. I’ve never heard of making a dressing with it but it’s a fabulous idea!
I can devour the sauce by the bottle load 🙂
I love the flavor of horseradish! This sauce sound like an amazingly flavorful marinade and dressing.
I must try it as a marinade Cindy 🙂
Your dressing looks lovely, anything to make salad taste better 😛

Thanks Uru 🙂
Oh my goodness how great minds think alike!!! I have a recipe for something very similar sitting in my inbox just getting ready to post. I am going to do a link to yours as how fun is that!!!
Wow, I love how the blogasphere works 🙂
I have never had horseradish but it sounds really good! 😀
Thanks Anne 🙂
I think that this sauce will work pretty well with meat due to its distinctive taste. Good job, Tandy!
Thank you Julie 🙂
Hi Tandy, well, here in Buffalo, it’s tradition to eat your roast beef sandwich with horseradish, it’s just the way it is served and expected. Funnily enough, we made a special trip last night to buy horseradish as we were out..for the beef on wreck as it is called here.
I am salivating at the thought of beef on wreck Laura 🙂
That kick from the horseradish sounds so tasty!
It is indeed Joanne 🙂
I can smell how amazing it must be from here!
Thanks Pamela 🙂
I love horseradish but it doesn’t really grow here either. I enjoy it best of BBQ steak. Every two years we head to the Barossa Valley and I top up my supply of Zimmy’s Horseradish which I then add to sauces. I’ll keep this recipe handy for the next time I’m making some.
I have another recipe for your horseradish that I will post soon I hope 🙂
Never had horseradish with grilled steak before, sounds delicious…
It is Dedy 🙂
We love horseradish! I love to mash it into potatoes or eat it with cheese. Will try your recipe as we are flush in red potatoes right now.
I love it with cheese as well 🙂
The flavour of fresh horseradish or the japanese counterpart, fresh wasabi is so different! So spicy and such great kick! I tried fresh horseradish once from the farmer’s market- and used it in place of mustard for a sauce and it was really good. Love your dressing – yum!
I must use it more often Shu Han 🙂
I’m glad to know that I’m not the only lover of raw horseradish =)
Me too Angela!
Love that fresh horseradish!
Thank you Medha 🙂
Yum! I love horseradish too. I’ve learned that I can grow horseradish easily and well here, so I’m very excited to get some planted soon. 🙂
Let me know how well yours does Krista 🙂
I’m with you about liking horseradish. I’ve got tarragon in my garden and I’ll be trying your sauce…it sounds good.
Thank you Karen, and enjoy your tarragon 🙂
I made your delicious recipe & loved it so much! My Peter agreed with me! xx
That is so good to hear Sophie 🙂
I was talking with Mom the other day about what we would put in our veggie patch this year and horseradish made the list. Love me a horseradish too. Great recipe, cant wait to whip up a batch. 🙂
Hope your horseradish grows in abundance Anna 🙂
