- 4 ounces fresh horseradish root*
- 2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
- 1 1/2 cups crème fraîche or sour cream
- 3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1. Peel the horseradish root with a vegetable peeler. Grate finely or whirl in a food processor until finely chopped. In a small bowl, mix horseradish with vinegar.
- 2. In another bowl, whisk crème fraîche until slightly thickened. Stir in horseradish mixture, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.
- * Fresh horseradish is sold in well-stocked produce markets; if you can't find it, you can substitute 1/4 to 1/2 cup prepared horseradish and omit the vinegar. Either way, make the sauce a day ahead of time to allow the flavors to blend.
