Ever since I was a little girl I have had a love affair with horseradish. During my grandmother’s Passover seder, she would serve that jarred gefilte fish that looked vaguely like a wet ball of dryer lint. No chance I was touching that plate of crazy. Instead, I went right for the spicy white horseradish, digging in with a small fork, while everyone else politely tried to nibble on my grandma’s plated fish. And since then I have loved anything with a horseradish tang.
But horseradish isn’t just for gefilte fish – it’s great in cocktails, a perfect accompaniment to beef dishes and even adds a nice bite to creamy casseroles. In honor of July being horseradish month (who makes these things up!?) here are 11 unique ways to enjoy horseradish beyond Passover.
