Horseradish-Mustard Cream Sauce

Makes about 1 cup

Not a fan of cranberry sauce? A perky horseradish-mustard cream sauce that whips up quickly offers your guests a completely different flavor option at the holiday table.


  • 1 teaspoon wasabi mustard powder, or to taste
  • About 1 teaspoon cold water
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 8-ounce tub dairy sour cream


Blend the wasabi powder with just enough water to make a paste and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir the wasabi and mustard into the sour cream. Taste, and add more wasabi paste or mustard if needed. Transfer to a serving bowl.
