Basic White Spread

IMG_9651

This recipe is very versatile. You can use as is on sandwiches, burgers, etc. You can also add ketchup and relish to it for a thousand island sauce. You can add dill, chives, parsley, garlic and a dash of hot sauce and make it into a ranch spread. You can add chipotle and lime juice to make it Chipotle-style.

I have made this with plain Greek Yogurt which I love using for spreads and salad dressings. This is not mayo so do not be expecting that taste. But it is a delicious and healthy spread that you can use when you are tired of eating mustard. There is a product out there called Vegenaise (http://followyourheart.com/products/original-3/) which I have tried and it is almost identical  to real mayonnaise, however, it is not readily available everywhere. I have found it at a natural food store and have recently found it at my local grocery store in the refrigerated health food section.

  • salt and pepper to taste
