We like to serve this with grilled peppers and toasted baguette. Edited to add: if you're using store bought wasabi paste, be aware that it is MUCH weaker, and if you want it to have a kick, you'll need to add quite a bit more.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir lemon juice and wasabi paste into the sour cream.
  2. Add crushed garlic and horseradish.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

This was very good, but quite mild. I used a very potent powdered wasabi, and some pretty strong horseradish (Bubbe's), although I realize fresh would be a lot stronger than bottled. I think in future I'll increase the wasabi at least. It went very well with crudites. Thanks for posting, AmandaInOz! UPDATE: I made this again using double the horseradish and double the wasabi, and let the wasabi sit longer before stirring it in--it was so much better this time! We all liked it before, but we like it even better with the additional kick! It's still not very hot, just has a little kick to it. If it was too hot, DS wouldn't touch it!

This was a NICE CREAMY dip with a hint of flavor. I also think it needs more punch from the wasabi and horseradish. Next time I think I'd at least double them. I used fresh grated horseradish from a homemade horseradish sauce I made. I let this sit overnight and we enjoyed it with crudites for an Asian theme dinner. Made for Beverage tag.

This was creamy and tasty. I expected and want more heat! I served this on a pot roast.
