[Comments] (6) Mayo vs. Miracle Whip: What's the Point?: I have heard more than one argument about the various aspects of mayonnaise and Miracle Whip that make one better than the other and I have just one thing to say: Neither!

While the general idea of putting pure, flavorless (and in the case of Miracle Whip, sugar-loaded) blobs of fat on a sandwich is entirely revolting, I must admit that mayonnaise (which is what I call both of these condiments) has some good points. Well, one good point. It keeps a sandwich from becoming dry. But why add fat and no flavor just because you are too uncreative to think of a better alternative? There are so many other possibilities. One excellent example is Subway's Sweet Onion sauce, which is entirely fat-free. Oil and vinegar, vinagrette dressings, even Ranch dressing will add some flavor in with its calories. European Connections offers cranberry sauce as a dressing for their savory crepes.

In closing, I would just like to say, give a try to some of those wonderous possibilities out there, and let me know what you find.

I've still never made Portuguese salad for you, with bacon, chicken, apples, mayo, and potato sticks. It's actually quite tasty!

If you make your own mayonnaise it will be yummy and not disgusting or flavorless.

How, exactly, does one make their own mayo?

Egg, lemon juice and oil.

I love European Connection...why did it close in Riverwoods?

Nothing survives long there.
