Quick Demo


a) Horseradish - Prepared horseradish (i.e. the stuff that comes in jars and looks quite creamy) works best here because it blends in with the mayo nicely. I haven't tested with fresh horseradish or dried horseradish, but you could test around if you wish!
b) Taste test - Start off conservatively with the horseradish because it is very pungent! Just work to preference and adjust the lemon juice/black pepper to taste. 
c) Storage - Tightly cover in the fridge for up to a week (longer at your discretion).
d) Calories - Whole recipe divided by 6.
