Horseradish is the root of the horseradish plant, which when grated has a spicy, almost peppery kick. It's usually sold prepared in a a jar, either grated on its own, or mixed with beet juice, which turns it pink and slightly mellows its flavor. Kitchen Daily expert Gail Simmons likes to showcase its flavor in her Salad of Roasted Beets, Green Beans, Horseradish and Honey Lemon Vinaigrette. It's a great side dish -- the spiciness of the horseradish is temptered by the bright, citrus flavor of the dressing.
