This recipe makes a great marinade for both chicken and fish (especially salmon), and I am sure there are many other things you could slather with this. If you try something new with it and love it, be sure to leave a comment below so I can try it too!

If you want a very different but equally delicious salad dressing, be sure to check out my strawberry basil salad dressing recipe. It is super refreshing and adds a subtle sweetness to your salad, perfect for ones with berries in it! Or my nut butter vinaigrette, whose name speaks for itself! It is perfect, especially for an Asian-inspired salad. But for now, let’s stay focused on the deliciousness that is this creamy horseradish sauce.

This sauce only requires three ingredients. It has no added sugar, is vegan thanks to my favorite dairy-free yogurt brand, and is full of healthy fats. And if you are scared of fats, don’t be! They are a good thing. We need fats in our diet, not only because they build our hormones and our brain is about 60% fat, but also because they help us absorb the nutrients from our other foods (like veggies).

In the meantime, you can rest easy knowing this sauce is so so good for you, and so incredibly addicting! If you’re looking for other tasty sauces, try this chimichurri with cilantro!

Let’s Make Some Creamy Horseradish Sauce!

All you need to do is grab some dairy-free yogurt, measure out your horseradish mustard, and get your apple cider vinegar. Mix them all together—you can do it right in the Lavva container if you want—and you’re done! The quantities below make enough dressing for two dinner-sized salads. If you need more, just double or triple the recipe! I recommend using this for salads and as a meat marinade. I initially used it on a salad and absolutely loved it. However, I have also baked chicken with it, as well as salmon! What will you use it for?
