Tuna salad, egg salad, lobster salad: could any of them exist without mayonnaise? Growing up, my family preferred Miracle Whip, which was loaded with high fructose corn syrup, but I've given that up in the past few years in favor of real mayo, store-bought or sometimes home made. Not just for salads and sandwiches, mayonnaise is the mystery ingredient in my basil pesto, and my husband Ted's Uncle Donald adds some to scrambled eggs. People have strong feelings about mayo; some can't stand it, others can't live without it. How about you?
