Bibb salad with horseradish root dressing

I need something to do with the fresh horseradish root I bought for the Dr.Pepper short rib recipe.
I googled some ideas for salad dressings and found a Martha Stewart recipe. This is adapted from that recipe. We are lucky in this area to have Bay water Farms hydroponic Bibb lettuce available in most grocery stores. They are located on the eastern shore of Maryland in Salisbury. I love their Bibb lettuce we sold it when I was at Sysco and I was fortunate enough to tour the farm.
