Dave DeWitt Recipes Leave a Comment

Horseradish is often overlooked as a viable hot and spicy ingredient. However, any one who has ever eaten something prepared with a healthy helping of horseradish will attest to its hot and potent powers! This recipe is an adaptation of a classic from the Horseradish Information Council. Serve over any prepared salad.


  • 1/2 cup fresh roma tomatoes, peeled and seeded

  • 1 tablespoon vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, minced

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard

  • 1/4 teaspoon habanero powder

  • 1/2 cup olive oil


Combine all of the ingredients except the olive oil in a blender jar. Blend until smooth. While the blender is still running, slowly add the olive oil until the dressing is well combined and thick. Cover and leave at room temperature.
