Creamy Horseradish Dip


Warning! Selfish Post!

I was also selfish this past weekend and did no blogging!

But I want this one to go in my recipe arsenal because I love horseradish. However, I didn’t realize how much I loved it until my 30s. Once I discovered this recipe, I wanted to pour it over everything…

I’m not sure where I found it, so I can’t give anyone the credit. Although to some of you, this may just seem like an obvious throw-together recipe…

Creamy Horseradish Dip


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (I made this olive oil mayo for my base and it turned out heavenly!)
  • 1.5 tsp prepared horseradish, or to taste
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • pinch of salt


  1. Mix ingredients together.
  2. Store in fridge. {I like to write the expiration date of the mayo I used on the container.}
Yup. That’s it! The consistency is much like a dip. However, I think you could make it more into a dressing with a touch of water, milk, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice or more vinegar, depending on your tastes.
How you can use this:
  • Dip for veggies
  • Spread on sandwiches or wraps
  • Drizzle on one of these bowls as your sauce
  • Salad dressing
  • Drizzle over veggies
  • Dip meats, such as steak bites, roast, slices of pork chop or chicken
  • To up the flavor in your potato salad
  • Drizzle over hard boiled eggs
  • Use to make tuna salad, chicken salad or egg salad

How else would you use this creamy horseradish dip?

  1. I love all things horseradish! I just had shrimp last weekend and it came with a side of cocktail sauce and horseradish sauce and I ate ALL the horseradish – yum!

    I’ve made a cheddar horseradish dipping sauce for homemade pretzels before – yum!

    and you might like my horseradish mustard BBQ sauce – I forgot about that one – so good!

  2. This made me smile. I LOVE horseradish. When I was pregnant with my son, I craved it. I’d grab a knife because a spoon wouldn’t fit in the narrow jar and eat it right off the knife out of the jar, standing in front of the fridge with the door hanging open. I realize this is like drinking out of a milk carton, but I WAS pregnant and besides, no one else liked horseradish so I didn’t worry about germs. Maybe horseradish is so strong it kills germs?
