This makes a nice dip for fresh vegetables or french fries. It also goes well with potatoes and meat.
½ cup buttermilk
½ cup mayonnaise, sour cream, or yogurt
2 tablespoons grated horseradish
2 garlic cloves
Salt and freshly ground pepper
¼ cup chopped parsley
Fresh lemon juice or white wine vinegar
Combine the buttermilk, yogurt, and horseradish is a bowl. Mince the garlic with ¼ teaspoon of salt until a thick paste; add parsley and mince to bruise the herbs (this can be done in a mortar and pestle or by hand). Add this to the buttermilk mixture with lemon juice to taste.
