Egg Salad with Better Body Foods Avocado Mayo

Can you believe that this avocado mayo tastes just like your regular mayo, and uses 100% avocado oil? This avocado mayo is creamy and so smooth…you will love it!

I must admit that I was very skeptical when approached to try the avocado oil mayo as I have tried the olive oil mayo and just did not like it…well, after trying this product I must confess…it is amazing, you can not tell the difference between the regular mayonnaise when compared to this one made with avocado.

Since the oil is necessary in the making of mayonnaise, it will make sense that the kind of fat used will determine the health level of the mayonnaise. The best oil for mayonnaise would be olive or avocado oil…both oils in moderation are healthy…

I used a very simple way to test the avocado oil mayonnaise…egg salad…and it was delicious…

There is not recipe as hard boil eggs were chopped and mayonnaise added to taste.  I did add freshly ground rainbow pepper to the egg mixture…and made a simple sandwich with the egg salad so nothing would mask the flavor of the mayonnaise.

– The verdict…

Awesome, as mention before I did not care for mayonnaise made with olive oil, due to its strong flavor, but loved the mayonnaise with avocado oil, being the flavor milder and hard to differentiate between the traditional one. Not only tasted wonderful avocado oil in moderation is good for you heart and brain, lower your cholesterol and is loaded with antioxidants…
