Horseradish mayo is the best of both worlds. Spicy, pungent horseradish combined with creamy mayo, plus a splash of lemon juice and salt. The end result is a condiment that’s perfectly creamy with a bit of spice from the horseradish.

I originally made this for my roast beef sliders. Then I realized how good it would be on other things. Think burgers, chicken sandwiches, and wraps. Not to mention as a dip for fries or veggies. Now I like to keep some in the fridge for whenever I want to add a bit of flavor to a dish.

Common Questions

What is horseradish?

Horseradish is a condiment typically made with the root of a horseradish plant, vinegar, sugar, and salt. The horseradish plant is a root vegetable in the same family as wasabi and mustard.

Where can I find horseradish?

Fresh horseradish is in the produce section near ginger, while prepared horseradish is in the condiment section.

Why is horseradish called horseradish?

Despite the name, horseradish has absolutely nothing to do with horses or radish. The name is said to come from the German version of the word, meerrettich. English mispronunciation of the word led to “mareradish” which then eventually turned into “horseradish”.

Is fresh or jarred horseradish better?

For horseradish mayo, jarred horseradish tends to be better. It means less work and the consistency of jarred horseradish blends better with the mayo.

Proper Storage

Horseradish mayo should be stored in an airtight container, such as a glass jar, in the fridge. It will last for about 5 days.

Mayonnaise does not freeze well, so I do not recommend freezing this.
