  • Combine ingredients in a bowl. Serve immediately or serve chilled.


  • All horseradish is different, some are spicier than others. Add less horseradish for a milder cocktail sauce and more if you like more of a kick.
  • Don’t use horseradish sauce. Make sure it’s prepared horseradish. You can usually find this in the deli section of your supermarket.
