A little horseradish gives a lot of zip to this tart cooked dressing from Naomi Giddis of Two Buttes, Colorado. Cornstarch offers a convenient way to thicken this tangy blend without oil.


  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Artificial sweetener equivalent to 2 teaspoons sugar, optional


  1. In a saucepan, combine the cornstarch, mustard and water until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Cool completely. In a bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Whisk in cornstarch mixture. Store in refrigerator. Stir before serving.
