Author Notes: I adapted this recipe from somewhere a million years ago. It is the perfect little something to accompany fish, shell fish, or rare roast beef. I think that I first started serving it with kabobs and now I even use it as a base for slaw. - MyCommunalTableMyCommunalTable

Food52 Review: I would never, ever have thought to combine horseradish with orange zest and juice. What a delicious concoction! The orange magically holds in check the boisterousness of the generous amount of horseradish used, while the cultured and sweet creams provide a rich smoothness. The touch of mustard is brilliant, too. I used this in a carrot salad and in my favorite salted cabbage salad, and also served it with some cold leftover pork shoulder. I halved the recipe, thinking I wouldn’t need 2 ½ cups. That worked just fine, but I was dead wrong about not needing that much. I’ll be making more, soon. - AntoniaJamesAntoniaJames

Makes 2 1/2 cups

  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup white horseradish, drained or squeezed out
  • 2 T. tablespoons fresh orange zest
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • pinches sugar
  • splashes fresh squeezed orange juice
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  1. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, horseradish, orange zest, splash or slight squeeze of orange juice, and mustard in a bowl.
  2. In another bowl whip heavy whipping cream until it forms peaks. (I like my cream quite thick, while my sister likes her's whipped to soft peaks. You're call.)
  3. Fold the first bowl into the whipped cream. Then add sugar, salt and pepper. Taste, adjust seasoning. Will hold in fridge for half a day as a sauce or couple days if you use it as a base for slaw. Taste good served immediately as well.

Thanks Antonia. The orange does make it different. I love how light the texture is with the whipping cream. Let me know what you think...

I like this and bet it would be good with some Meyer lemon zest and/or juice too.
