Horseradish Mayonnaise is mayonnaise with a little prepared horseradish, creamed horseradish or horseradish powder stirred in.
You can make it yourself, or buy it commercially prepared.
Per ½ cup (4 oz / 125ml) of mayonnaise, use 2 to 3 teaspoons of prepared horseradish.
Add a teaspoon at a time, whisk to blend, and see how the taste is coming along for you.
Ideally, it should have what would be to your tastebuds just a healthy hint of horseradish taste. If you’re a wild-eyed horseradish enthusiast, you may of course crank up the horseradish ratio as much as you like.
To freshen the taste, you can try adding a squirt of lemon juice, up to about 1 teaspoon per ½ cup (4 oz / 125 ml) of mayonnaise.
Some recipes call for Worcestershire sauce as well, but that changes the colour considerably.
