"You cannot teach a crab to walk straight."
-Aristophanes, Greek Playwright
I had a version of this salad in Spain. It was a bit unexpected, with the horseradish being subtle and light. The flavors balance each other beautifully: the crab is full of fresh, sweet seafood flavor, the horseradish lends heat, and the tangy sour cream smooths it all out.
Horseradish is a brassica - from the same family as broccoli, cabbage, and mustard greens. The root of the horseradish is grated as a spice. The greens are not often prepared, but can be cooked similarly to mustard greens. The prepared version of horseradish that you purchase in the store is essentially pickled and generally contains only the addition of a bit of salt and vinegar. This is very different from products labelled "horseradish sauce," which are essentially the grated root combined with mayonnaise.
