Horseradish Yogurt Sauce is creamy and full of tang! This quick and easy homemade sauce pairs well with steak, fish and potatoes!
Horseradish cream is a paste like ingredient that brings a tangy almost spicy flavor to dishes.
Sold as a condiment and widely available at the supermarket, it adds texture, taste and zing to dishes!
Versatile and lending itself to a number of serving ideas, such as paired with potatoes, drizzled on salad or dolloped on beef, this recipe will soon become a household favourite.
You may recall it from my Horseradish Mashed Potatoes, the perfect side dish for everything!
It easily elevates dishes to the next level point of yum, yet is smooth, and understated, rising to the challenge when called for!
Everything you need to make the sauce is shown in the photo below. Each are simple ingredients and easy to find!
As you can see, the recipe calls for:
- Greek Yogurt (can use low fat)
- horseradish cream (sold in a jar at the supermarket, pale cream colour)
- garlic (peeled and end cut off)
- salt and pepper
The horseradish cream will be in a small jar, likely in the same location as the mustards at the supermarket.
It is unique in taste and texture.
If you are new to it, simply open the jar and take a little taste with the tip of your finger, you will soon come to delight in what this condiment delivers and want to smother it over everything!
Here are the step by step instructions to make this sauce.
You will need a food processor with a sharp blade to begin as we prepare the garlic, salt and pepper (not the shred but the dice blade).
- add garlic, salt and pepper to food processor, blitz (Photo 1)
- dollop in Greek Yogurt (Photo 2)
- followed by horseradish cream (Photo 3)
- blitz to combine, 3-5 seconds (Photo 4)
If you want to use minced garlic, you can.
If using full garlic cloves, like I am, you need to use the food processor to mince them up before adding the yogurt.
Otherwise the yogurt covers the blades and doesn't allow them to do their job of 'chopping'.
These are really quick, simple steps that need to be followed one after the other.
In the photo above, you will see what your sauce will look like before it is mixed together and after.
I do try with these photos, to make them look pretty, but I tell you, it is tricky as I find they tend to look more blob like than glamour shoot!
It takes between 3-5 seconds to blitz the ingredients together and the texture will be smooth and creamy, with some fibrous flecks from the horseradish.

There is a subtle smooth creaminess to the sauce that holds its own as you delight in the flavour of the horseradish paired with the gooey egg and crispy bacon. It is a delightful combo!
Frequently asked questions
What do you serve with horseradish cream
Horseradish cream works wonderfully with beef, steak, chicken, fish and potatoes! It is a savory condiment that doesn't overload the flavour of the dish it is served with. Rather it brings its own melody to the chorus.
Can yogurt be used in sauces
Yogurt is a wonderful addition to sauces as it brings a smooth creamy texture without the high fat content of cream.
Some off the shelf sauces can be quite high in sugar and have an overly sweet taste.
Using yogurt in sauces is a great way to create a thick dollop able sauce texture, whilst keeping it a healthier choice!
What is the best thing to put horseradish on
Kebabs, chicken and lamb all call for a dollop of horseradish cream.
It adds taste and tang and will have you coming back for more.
