what to do with mayo

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 12, 2011 at 8:47 PM

Today I made my first batch of paleo mayo. It was fun, it tastes good... but now what? Historically I used mayo on sandwiches, which are no longer an option. So what are some good uses for mayo? All I can think of is salad dressing and making chicken/tuna salads. Any good recipes or suggestions?

No self respecting Carolinian puts mayo on barbecue.

Coleslaw... shredded cabbage, carrots and onions - add mayo with some wholegrain mustard, small amount of lemon juice & apple cider vinegar. Can't beat it. And deviled eggs...nom!

Do this, I swear it will rock your socks off:

Mix in garlic, lemon, and either some hot smoked paprika or some of the sauce from a can of chipotles in adobo, or, if you are feeling very fancy, some gently toasted saffron threads. Then, dip lobster or crab or really, any other kind of seafood in it. You can also use it as a condiment for seafood stew. Be prepared to swipe the bowl with your finger. This is the closest thing to crack you will ever eat -- I feel almost irresponsible telling you all about it. Also unreal on French Fries, lightly steamed vegetables, as a sauce with tuna tartare, etc. etc. etc.

Put a hot egg (fried, scram, whatever) on a lettuce wrap with tomato and bacon... and like 3 lbs of mayo. Mmmm... best with green onions or a little cheese if you can have it.

I've used it to make chicken salad. Boil breasts or thighs - or a mix - then shred and mayo up! I make a big batch and leave it very lightly seasoned, so that each time I have some I can season it differently.....with garlic salt or Old Bay, mmmmmmm.

Mayo (especially if you doctor it with additional spices) makes a great marinade for chicken or fish.

I've found Oopsie Rolls to be a lifesaver. You can Google the recipe, but they have opened up the world of sandwiches for me again.

I put turmeric in mayo - and I love it in almost anything - shredded Crockpot chicken is amazing with turmeric mayo...but then so is anything, even plain old water. I make lettuce "sandwiches" too, or scoop out an avocado, mix it into canned sardines, salmon,...

Make coleslaw with it.

Mix some chili paste in it and use it as spicy sauce a sauce for sushi.

Make some tacos, but use lettuce instead of tortillas, and the mayo instead of sour cream.

Or tuna mayo or potato salad.
