Cranberry Horseradish Mayo

Cranberry Horseradish Mayo

Weeks before Thanksgiving my sister and I were already making plans for the leftovers.  Turkey Noodle Soup, Turkey Divan, Turkey Tetrazzini, Potato Pancakes, Roasted Veggie Soup, and let us not forget Thanksgiving Dinner Sandwiches.

Oh yeah, we’ve got stuffing, turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce all piled into a sandwich of comfort.  Then without notice she blurts out Cranberry Horseradish Mayo.  What?!  There was silence for about a nano-second before I shouted out.  Brilliant!

The sweetness from the cranberries paired with the horseradish was magical.  Yes, by all means spread this on sandwiches, but I’m giddy about the other possibilities.  Slathered on chicken breasts before baking.  Used as a dressing for pasta or chicken salad.  Served as a dip with fresh veggies.
