How to Spruce Up Meals with Mayonnaise
September 01, 2022
Mayo is made for more than sandwiches—at least ours is! Made with real ingredients like avocado oil and Certified Humane cage-free eggs, and without cane sugar or corn syrup, our delicious Original Mayo has the classic taste adults and kids crave. This creamy, versatile condiment can enhance the taste of raw vegetables, add creaminess to wraps and rolls, keep your meats juicy, and so much more. Spread it, use it as a dip, or mix it into mayo-based sides like potato salad and coleslaw.
