At my house, this Horseradish Sauce is everyone’s favorite sauce for fresh steamed vegetables. By adding spice variations to several recipes, I think this sauce has the perfect blend of flavors, and you can add as much zip as you like with red pepper. This easy-to-prepare sauce is the perfect accompaniment to serve with steamed fresh broccoli, green beans, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and carrots. Try it, and I think it will be requested at your gatherings too.
