The fresh horseradish in this sauce makes all the pungent difference that fresh herbs do in cooking.


How to Make It

Step 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.

Step 2

In another bowl, whisk crème fraîche until slightly thickened. Stir in horseradish mixture, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3

* 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.

Step 4

Make ahead: 1 day; keep chilled.

This was really fun having fresh horseradish sauce. The parsley was a nice touch!
