Mayo for short, it makes a nice base for creamy salad dressings. My mother used to coat tomatoes and lettuce in a salad with mayo until you could see no color at all. It was quite yummy, but not quite a healthy salad I have to say.
Of course you should never leave mayo out to long. On picnics, it can turn rather quick on a warm day. To eat mayonaisse can be a risk-taking endeavor if you are not careful. Put some horseradish and cream cheese and you have a fine dip for potato chips or crackers.
I am not sure why this revery about the joys of mayonaisse. I have to say I derive a lot of pleasure from eating and mayonaisse is one of those things I just think is a marvelous invention and culinary delight. And, well, isn't it the little things that make life worth living? I say so.
