Spicy, creamy, and light, this Red Beet Horseradish Dipping Sauce is perfect for fried shrimp, chicken, or as a veggie dip!
A few weeks ago my husband made a horseradish dipping sauce from Alton Brown to dip onion rings in. I thought a different version of it would be good with seafood like shrimp.
My husband and his uncle make red beet horseradish every year for Easter and Christmas. We serve it with kielbasi and cocktail shrimp at the holidays, but they make a lot of it and jar it so we have it all year long. I have no idea what the recipe is for it, since they make it at my husband’s uncles house, but red beet horseradish is available in the refrigerated section of grocery stores. Try to find one that the red beets are pureed in, not with whole pieces of red beets.

I have to admit I was a bit surprised when my picky daughter asked me to make it a few days later. All of a sudden she’s really into shrimp! I’ll be updating an older recipe later this week that she has insisted I make!
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup prepared red beet horseradish
- 1/2 teaspoon bacon salt try J&D's, see notes
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
Combine yogurt, prepared horseradish, bacon salt, and lemon zest in a small mixing bowl. Stir well, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
