We use Hellman's mayo and absolutely nothing else. I will sometimes dip my French fries in this mayo. I should do a Thread on, what some would call "odd" or "WHAT???", foods that I ate that my grandma ate. Think they were definitely Southern.
I think that is because they cannot market it as mayonnaise since it has sugar in it, but "salad dressing" is a generic term that covers almost anything from oil and vinegar to stuff with buttermilk in it...and spoiled (bleu/blue) cheese.
My wife has become a big user of mayo as a dip for things since she can no longer eat dairy-based things.
None of the mayo I eat or buy has any sweeteners in it at all. I often make my own and use only the yolks, then use the whites for macaroons, a cookie my wife can eat.
I never encountered Dukes anywhere but in the South. I haven't been to the East Coast much lately, though.
Im with the tomato sandwich on toast person with mayo...
The soft white bread makes it to mushy,apologies to the purists
Hellmann's does, and so does Duke's. Those are the only two I checked, and they both use sugar.
Yep, even some of the recipes now include sugar (2 pinches). The mayo I use does not list sugar as an ingredient and the stuff I make does not contain sugar. I guess adding sugar is now allowed below a certain amount as it permits the use of inferior ingredients and covers up inconsistencies. Sorry. In the old days, only Miracle Whip had sugar, and high fructose corn syrup was not in common use yet as it began to be commonly used as a cheaper sugar during Carter's disastrous administration (due to inflation of the cost of sugar).
The Star of the show is still the Tomato!
Nothing beats a sandwich with bacon and lettuce on wheat bread with Dukes Mayonnaise and tomatoes from your own vine.
Tomatoes on the hoof, as it were.
