This 5-ingredient spicy sauce is the perfect sandwich spread for a grilled reuben but makes a delicious dip for shrimp, too. Stir it together in just a minute and keep it handy in the fridge for dozens of uses.
I look forward to making my favorite grilled turkey reubens for St. Patrick's Day every spring.
Normally, I use prepared Thousand Island dressing for the sauce but I finally found the perfect homemade spicy sauce substitute.
Made with just 5 ingredients you likely already have on hand, this creamy sandwich spread also makes a delicious dip for shrimp.
The best part? You can adjust the cayenne pepper to make it as mild or as spicy as you prefer!
You likely have all of these easy ingredients on hand in your fridge or pantry:
- Mayonnaise: I used one made with olive oil so it is lighter, but you can use whichever mayo you prefer.
- Prepared Horseradish: Not horseradish sauce, just plain horseradish. I found ours in the seafood department at our grocery store.
- Cayenne Pepper
This recipe couldn't be easier. Simply add the ingredients to a small mixing bowl and stir them together!
If you're nervous about the cayenne pepper, start with just a dash and taste it. You can always add a little more if you want it spicier.
Look at that gorgeous creamy pink sandwich spread!
I love it on my favorite turkey reuben but it would be delicious with any sandwich made with roast beef, ham, or veggies!
