Healthier Creamy Horseradish Sauce

Creamy horseradish sauce is usually made with sour cream, which means it's loaded with unhealthy fat. This version uses plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, which cuts down on the fat -- and if you're really watching your fat intake, you'll be glad to know that you can use FAT-FREE plain Greek yogurt and still have a deliciously rich-tasting horseradish sauce! The key is to use a good quality Greek yogurt (organic if possible, but Oikos or Chobani brands will work), which have a mouthfeel and tang that are remarkably close to sour cream, even when you use the fat-free Greek yogurt. Ordinary "non-Greek" yogurt just doesn't taste close enough to sour cream, so I don't recommend it for this recipe. This horseradish sauce is wonderful with roast beef or prime rib.

1 cup plain Greek Yogurt (fat-free will work)
1/4 cup prepared horseradish
1 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice

Combine all ingredients thoroughly, and store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator. Stir well before using. That's it!

Zestfully yours,
Carolina Sauce Company
