On sandwiches I use avocado, which is also a good replacement for cheese! Avocado has a creamy texture which makes sandwiches "juicy" and the flavor is just another added layer. I've also seen a recipe on www.skinnytaste.com for an avocado egg salad...I'm sure it would work as a chicken salad, etc. Sounds delicious!

I like Hellman's Canola Oil or Olive Oil mayo. Tastes a little different than regular but the (much) lower fat and calories are well worth it!

Thanks for all your suggestions. They are on my shopping list.
I make my own with some cashews and lemon and a little olive oil (very little). It is really good

I really like Greek yogurt. I'll try the yogurt, low fat mayo and Dijon.for the next sandwich (the Arnolds Whole Wheat sandwich thins are perfect for lunches). Thanks for the great ideas.

I agree with Klamora, use 0% fat Greek Yogurt mixed with a bit of mustard!

I feel the same as KMMR87 about liking Hellman's Lowfat when I have to use mayo. I 'm certainly not a yogurt person that much, so for that being a sub. is not for me. I agree that avocado is so good for adding moisture to a sandwich, but I hardly eat any sandwiches anymore. I'll be making deviled eggs for an Easter get-together and I'll use the Hellman's Lowfat when making them.

Try mixing 1/2 hellmans no fat with 1/2 greek yogurt and a small squirt of dijon mustard, very tasty!

Depending on what you need the mayo for, you can try using nonfat plain greek yogurt. I've used that instead of mayo for salads and dips, and it's worked out well.

If I really need mayo, I use Hellman's Low fat. If it's a sandwich I will not use anything but lettuce and tomato and cucumber. Avocado is great for adding moisture. Salsa is always good, too but high in sodium. Pickle relish, etc

I would like to receive some feedback on your best branded mayo or another alternative that 'tastes' like mayo. I like mayo a lot and the fat free brands I've tried in the past were not very good. The reduced-fat brand (Kraft) is okay. However, I thought I'd just ask the question to see if you have a brand (or mixed combination) that will taste similar to mayo without all the fat and calories. Thanks.
