A dollop of horseradish in a quick-and-easy sauce gives these green beans a spark of heat.


  • 4 pounds green beans, trimmed and halved crosswise
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 5 tablespoons drained bottled horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup finely choppped, flat-leaf parsley


  • Cook beans in a large pot of boiling well-salted water, uncovered, until just tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain beans in a colander.
  • Return beans to cooking pot, add remaining ingredients (except parsley) and stir until well coated.
