I made this keto horseradish dip for the first time a few years ago, and I was hooked after the first bite! It’s since become a staple in our house and I always make a batch whenever we have company over.

This sauce is also great on keto burgers, keto sandwiches, and as a dipping sauce for chicken or veggies.

1/4 cup prepared Horseradish

Making A Thicker Sauce

If you want your sauce to be thicker, just add 2 ounces (55g) of softened cream cheese. Mix the ingredients together until smooth.

I like the original recipe, but I know that some people prefer thicker sauces. If that’s you, it’s worth trying my method.

Your Questions Answered

I do agree with this, but at the end of the day- if low-carb sauces help you eat more meat, and you are staying in ketosis, then keep eating it!

Just don’t go overboard and pour half a pound of sauce on your dishes.

Can You Freeze This Sauce?

Freezing the low carb horseradish sauce is not recommended. I tried it, and the texture was really off when I thawed it out.

Since this recipe is so easy, I recommend making a new batch when you’re ready to use it again.

Is Mayonnaise Keto Friendly?

To make this low-carb horseradish sauce, we use mayonnaise. There are many brands that offer low carb mayonnaise. So, from this perspective, you can consider this sauce as keto friendly.


But, another important thing to consider is that commercial mayonnaise is made with soybean oil (or other vegetable oils). These oils may be keto-friendly, but in the long run- they are hurting your health.

These vegetable oils are highly processed and are rich in linoleic acid. This acid is pro-inflammatory and can be a cause of various health problems.
