Horseradish Mayo

Horseradish Mayo

Horseradish mayo is a perfect condiment for sandwiches, fish, and meat-based dishes. There are a lot of people who avoid horseradish, but it’s an excellent condiment when paired with other ingredients. I love horseradish, but I know that many people dislike it because of its pungent taste. Horseradish goes well with Greek yogurt, but my favorite sauce is horseradish mixed with mayonnaise.

The Ingredients

You can imagine that this condiment only requires a few ingredients. Mayonnaise, horseradish, salt, but I like to add a few more ingredients to enhance its flavor.

Here’s what to use:

  • Full-fat mayonnaise provides an extra creamy sauce and is much more flavorful than the light version, which is usually made with water, eggs, and modified food starch.

  • The horseradish in this recipe can be prepared with vinegar, salt, and grated radish root. Fresh horseradish is a root that you grate and add to your sauces, unlike prepared horseradish, which is made with vinegar, salt, and grated radish root. Preparation of horseradish blends better with mayonnaise, and it is easier to prepare.

  • The lemon juice is an optional ingredient, but it adds an extra citrusy flavor and elevates the entire condiment.

  • The most basic ingredients in the kitchen are salt and pepper. Nothing can go wrong with salt and pepper. But don’t overdo it!

What Does Horseradish Mayo Taste Like?

With the rich mayonnaise and lemon juice, this sauce has a creamy yet tangy texture. Horseradish’s pungent heat is still present, but is moderated by the mayonnaise and lemon juice.

There is something magical about this combination of fish burgers and fish patties with this sauce. This sauce is perfect for fish dishes.

What Else Can I Add?

Horseradish can easily be pushed to one side or the other, even with this condiment. Here are some additional ingredients to try:

  • A small amount of garlic powder can elevate the flavor of the condiment without overpowering the horseradish. If you prefer, you could use a small clove of garlic.

  • The chives will add a very light onion flavor and a little color to a dull white condiment. Fresh or dried, it doesn’t matter. Use whatever you have on hand.

Making Horseradish Mayo (Overview)

You can serve this horseradish mayo immediately or chill it for a few hours to let the flavors meld. There is no easier recipe than this. Simply gather all the ingredients and whisk them together in a bowl until well combined.

Adding garlic and chives at the same time is an overpowering combination, resulting in overpowering flavors.

How To Use Horseradish Mayo

Horseradish mayonnaise can be used in a variety of dishes. It adds a kick of heat to any recipe.

Generally, I use horseradish mayo to spread on sandwiches, along with fish and seafood, as well as beef. It makes a wonderful dip for vegetables, appetizers, or French fries.

How To Store Horseradish Mayo

You can store this mayonnaise in the refrigerator for up to two weeks if you use homemade mayonnaise.
