This is a sauce I made to go over pork last weekend. I got the recipe from Recipezaar.

Creamy Horseradish Yogurt Sauce

1½ cups vanilla yogurt
½ tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp prepared horseradish cream
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp barbecue sauce
1 tsp dried dill weed

Whisk together all sauce ingredients in a small bowl; allow to come to room temperature. Serve over pork, chicken, or beef.

Makes 8 servings.

The comments on the recipe at Recipezaar say that even though those ingredients sound really weird together, that the sauce is really good. So I made it to go over pork loin when we had some friends over for dinner. I put the sauce together, then gave it a taste. I thought it was horrible. I am not a horseradish fan and didn't like it at all. I thought I would end up having to pitch it and use something else for a sauce. I had my husband taste it and was really surprised when he loved it! He thought it was delicious. So, I went ahead and served it thinking he would be the only one to like it. Wrong! Our two friends both raved about it as well.

So I was happy to find I was in the minority on this one. If you like horseradish, you will like this sauce. If not, I would skip it unless the people you are cooking for like it.

Note: It does make a lot. I have a bunch leftover in the fridge and a husband begging me to make pork again!
