  • 6 tablespoons prepared horseradish rinsed, drained, and squeezed dry
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1.5 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared whole-grain mustard
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Granny Smith apple peel on, grated medium
  • 3 tablespoons finely diced red onion


  • Begin at least several hours in advance so the flavors have time to blend. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl until uniformly blended. 


Can be made a day in advance. The apple will not brown.
