Instead of mayonnaise, I put an avocado in the food blender and used that. It still gave me some healthy fats and was yummy!

Tried this recipe at an event recently.  Wow I was really surprised by how tasty it is.  I'll have to add it to my list to make at home now.

This recipe sounds pretty good but I'm egg sensitive. I could not find a recipe for an eggless mayonnaise on this site, is there one? If not please you consider adding one. TIA

We have a few eggless recipes on our site but that is not our focus.  Mayonnaise substitutes without eggs are commercially available although they may be called spreads or dressing since mayonnaise is a legally defined food product.  Read the ingredient list to be sure eggs are not included.
