Spicy Horseradish Pasta Salad pairs the flavor of horseradish with pepperoncini peppers for a pasta salad that really has some bite. You need this pasta salad at your next cookout or picnic.
I don’t do bland pasta salads and this Spicy Horseradish Pasta Salad is about as far from bland as you can get. It really gets a burst of flavor from 1/4 cup horseradish, 1/4 cup finely chopped pepperoncini peppers, plus a 1/4 cup of juice from the jar of pepperoncini peppers. To amp up the heat a little more, add in 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes.
You’re going to want a nice cold drink to wash this spicy pasta salad down with. Maybe a cold beer or a Strawberry Mojito.
A mixture of mayonnaise and sour cream forms a creamy base. Garlic salt, red onion, celery, peas, and Parmesan cheese round out the flavors.
PS- Leave the peas out if you want to.
