Amanda Simpson loves this zesty sauce with the Onion Rings recipe from her new cookbook, Food Porn Daily.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha hot chile sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne
  • 2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper, plus extra
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus extra

Directions

Whisk together sauce ingredients in a mixing bowl, breaking up the blue cheese as much as possible. Adjust seasoning to taste with more kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Refrigerate until ready for use. 

It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week. 

Serve with Buttermilk Beer Battered Onion Rings. 

Horseradish Shopping Tip

Look for roots that are firm and that do not have any bruises.

Horseradish Cooking Tip

Grate fresh horseradish just before using it; if it's grated too far in advance, it will oxidize and lose its pungency.
