"I have a quick question for this recipe. It states one tbls. horseradish sauce......is this the plain horseradish or the creamy type that you get at Arby's for their beef sandwiches. Thanks for your advice, I can't wait to try this for our next church potluck dinner."

"I've made this gelatin salad many times -- sometimes as printed above and sometimes with all lime gelatin. Either way, my family can't get enough of it."
