We love to use this versatile mayo on any sandwich, but it's especially good on a BLT or grilled hamburgers. I usually make a big batch on the weekends and use it as leftovers to dress up any evening meal. —Cindie Haras, Jupiter, Florida

"This sounds much like the mayonnaise/salad dressing that a namebrand company used to make a few yrs. ago. It was wonderful and they discontinued it."
