I have used this recipe with great success for more years than I care to count but I use a hot pepper sauce(to taste)in place of the horseradish. Horseradish,as with other bottled sauces,suffers from manufacturers choice in that the a/m product often is too vinegary so or so hot it burns the retina. Go with what you know you can depend on for that touch of fire that gives this recipe its'distinction.

Very delicious salad. I made as posted except didn't use fresh lemon juice, I used the bottle kind. I felt it was missing the extra spiciness that I love. Next time I plan to add some cayenne pepper or maybe some smoked paprika. Thanks for posting. :)

I am sure I have reviewed this recipe before, but, hey I could be wrong, obviously!! My daughterinlaw's fav summer salad, actually I have made this as an appetizer in winter too.. so a fav all year round. I followed your recipe to a T, but this time round, I added a quarter of an english cucumber, thinly diced, 1 tomatoe, and 1/2 a purple onion, just because I was out of green onions. It tasted spot on and of course the horseradish (my opinion) "hit the nail on the head" for a culmination of "titilatting" tastebud sensational salad! Thank you for sharing !
