A whole new way to think of mayonnaise. Just take your favorite mayo and blend it with fresh spinach and fresh herbs. It's a whole new taste!
Hitting self in forehead, “Why didn’t I think of this?”
Gaining acceptance, “This is why chefs are chefs.”
Smiling with gratitude, “I’m just glad someone thought of this.”
And then I made a sandwich.
Close your eyes and imagine a dollop or a schmear of mayonnaise, not just greener but fresher and brighter too. That’s the idea of Green Mayonnaise.
Time to table: 10 minutes
Makes 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise (my favorite is Hellman’s low-fat mayonnaise)
- 1/4 cup packed baby spinach (just the leaves, no stems)
- 2 tablespoons fresh mixed herbs
Mix until smooth in a mini food processor.
Green Mayonnaise will keep for two or three days but it’s best to make a new batch whenever one’s needed.
Use Green Mayonnaise whenever plain mayonnaise is called for, the old favorites like potato salad, coleslaw and egg salad but also spread on sandwiches and as a quick dip for fresh vegetables.
