Closer view of the rootOnce you grate/dice your root you cover it with white vinegar and the combination is what the horseradish sauce consists of. You can then add it to sour cream, chili sauce or experiment and create your own combinations. You want to use 1-2" of the root at a time and store the remainder in the refrigerator in a plastic bag - this way it will stay fresher for you. You do peel the brown skin off using a paring knife and use only the inner part of the root.
Tonight Garlic Potato Salad is on the menu and I suggested adding a touch of horseradish. Not sure if we will actually do this but it is an idea! The potato salad is very simple to make - all you need is a few ingredients and 3-4 hours time in the refrigerator for blending.
We still have parsley and cilantro growing strong and you could use either one or both. The combination of garlic and cilantro is addicting and I bet this bowl won't last long around here even if there is only two of us!
