Goes great with fresh chopped vegetables, crackers, and chips. Be sure to have a lot ready for the guys when the sports game is on, cause it will go fast!

I made this up this morning using my own horseradish. My youngest DD, who thinks she doesn't like horseradish or stone ground mustard didn't even know they were in this. We had a nice snack this afternoon of baby carrots and this dip. DH said he thought it would be better on chips and other veggies. DD chowed right down and indicated it would be good on all veggies, chips and crackers. It is quick and easy to make, as well as a very versatile recipe and I'll likely take it ocassionally for potlucks in the future, besides making it for ourselves again. Thank you for sharing this recipe Sue!!!
Great tasting dip, but I love bacon and horseradish. I liked this on potato chips.
My family loves any thing with hoseradish in it. Even the kids like this dip its not so strong. I'll be making this recipe alot. Thanks for the great recipe!
