Russian Zakuski / закуски Recipe: Grated Carrot with Horseradish

Russian zakuski dishes are small, introductory dishes normally served to guests on arrival after a long journey and prior to an indulgent feast.  Carrot is a popular and cheap base for many zakuski recipes.  This particular concoction is entirely that, an amalgamation of several recipes.  The taste may be a bit unusual but it is certainly pleasing.  Plus, it also makes a great alternative salad side dish.
