Mixed Greens with Horseradish Dressing

This recipe intrigued me as not only it sounded like a great foil to the richness of sausages and potatoes, but also as a great reason to buy fresh horseradish for the first time! I was surprised at not just the complexity of flavor in this dressing, but how versatile it felt. It was admittedly a bit of work grating fresh horseradish, I have my husband to thank for that tough bit of the job. But after that its as easy as shake, mix, eat.
