Creamy Lemon Horseradish Dip

This spread doesn’t dirty a food processor or blender: all you have to do is mix the ingredients together. If you have shallots or scallions on hand, they’re totally okay to use instead of chives. The finished sauce is smooth and creamy with a spicy kick from the horseradish and acidic lemon juice. Its fresh flavor pairs excellently with beef so smear it on the plate the next time you cook a steak dinner. It’s also tasty slathered generously on a roast beef sandwich or try pairing it with fish. Smoked salmon, capers, red onion, and lemon horseradish spread on a bagel? Yes, please!
