    It's the most disgusting condiment on Earth
    I think it was invented as a glue to keep lettuce attached to bread, and I think glue would taste like mayo (I can't say mayo tastes like glue because I haven't tasted glue)

    I eat ketchup and BBQ sauce, but no mayo. Love Thai sweet chili sauce but hate sweet and sour. I eat salads with no dressing no Caesar no vinegar so salt and pepper but sometimes peanut sauce is not bad.

    Do you hate mayo too?

    I'm not a huge fan, I don't go out of my way to add it to food at home.

    If it comes on a burger or something that I order when I'm out then I will usually leave it on.

    You're eating the wrong kind of Mayo.

    You just can't have a chicken sandwich without mayo. You just can't.

    "Give me ham on 5, hold the mayo".

    mmmmmmmmmmayonnaise!

    Delicious on roast beef sammiches... or ham sammiches... not so good on peanut butter & jelly sammiches tho...

    Better than ketchup on french fries.

    Nice thing is.. the low fat kind still tastes like mayonnaise!

    Any type of mayo is disgusting to me, be it real mayo, Miracle Whip....whatever. I hate the stuff. I never understood why burger joints think all people want that nasty stuff on their burgers. For me, the preferred setup for my burgers is cheese, lettuce, onions and mustard. If I make a burger at home, I won't put ketchup on it, but at a restaurant, it doesn't bother me to have ketchup or pickles on it. I'm allergic to pure tomatoes, but not ketchup. [​IMG]

    Mayo on chicken I can understand, though I don't put it on MY chicken sandwiches, because I agree with deathfisaro on the "most disgusting condiment on Earth" statement.

    Mayonnaise is good, like ketchup though I think there is a big difference in quality between the cheap stuff and the more expensive brands. I will eat the cheap stuff but it doesn't compare to say a bottle of Helmans or Heinz.

    Of course mayo only works with certain food, for example in a potato salad, and various meats in a sandwich. To be honest I prefer salad cream over mayo by a fair margin but it depends what I'm eating... I prefer salad cream with tuna but mayo with hazlet for example.

    Mayo is one of those things I have to eat in moderation though - too much is kinda icky. Ketchup on the other hand I can't get enough of! Of course I do consume more than 3 different sauces - I like a bit of variety! Though saying that I think I've become addicted to chicken tikka rolls again, which are looooovely.

    Oh and parents cooked lamb for dinner last couple of nights and we had the mint sauce and mint jelly out. Man I had forgotten how good mint jelly tastes. It's teh awesome!

    ...Back to reality I've just realised I've rambled on for 4 paragraphs talking about condiments and now I'm absolutely starving for something to eat!

    I prefer Miracle Whip than real mayo but with fries the real one is better but I usually use ketchup. In burgers it's disgusting.

    Man I like mayo on some stuff like salads, chicken sandwidches etc. But honestly the one mayo I totally loved and smeared on everything we cooked was the mayo from France. I kid you not mayo from france is the best. My parents buy it from carrefour.

    You know what they say about French mayonnaise...


    ..wait, even I don't know what they say about French mayonnaise...

    As an aside, I've typed the word mayonnaise so many times, I now know how to spell it!

    I'm a mustard person. The only thing I put mayo (Miracle Whip) is chicken sandwiches and BLTs.

    I too enjoy the tangy zip of Miracle Whip.

    Miracle Whip tastes good on pretty much everything, in my opinion. Burgers, hot dogs, chicken sammiches, fries sometimes, etc. Mayo can be okay sometimes in moderation, but I agree that it's pretty gross a good portion of the time.

    But, if we're going to be talking condiments, then nothing tops dijon mustard for me.

    I'd just like to point out that real mayonnaise doesn't come in jars from the supermarket, you make it out of egg yolk, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard powder, oil, salt and a tiny bit of sugar (optional).

    The stuff you buy at the store is similar, but it's not the real thing.

    When I order chicken burger, I specifically ask for no mayo. Have the burger to go and put some other stuff like sweet thai chili sauce on it instead.
    When I order caesar salad I ask for no caesar dressing (and they ask me if I want garden salad, no I want chicken caesar salad without caesar. That makes chicken garden salad [​IMG])
    I eat brocollis raw, they're delicious that way.
    And for "sandwiches" my favorite subway setup is footlong club (or melt) on honey oat, provologne(did I spell this right?), loads of lettuce, loads of tomato. That's it. And the workers stare at me with a weird look, even non-American workers there think having no sauce on sub is weird.

    I have no clue what Salad Cream is, neither can I tell the difference between French and non-French mayo. (I gotta try it, it may change my view on mayos)

    Oh yeah, when I went to Cafe Crepe, I ordered chicken and egg crepe and asked for no mayo in it, the waiter said the mayo acts as a glue and can't take it out. His tone somewhat implied "mayo=glue, not condiment" so I tipped him a bit extra =D

    Edit: If may I add, just the smell of mayo makes my stomach dance, I was 2 seconds away from declaring "mayo allergy".
    One time I forgot to ask for no mayo in my burger, I scraped it off with my spoon but i could still taste/smell the leftovers. I was unhappy whole afternoon that day =(
    I could actually have mayo allergies you know lol

    ^ Most times that I'm eating something with a condiment, I'm eating that thing simple as a vehicle to deliver that condiment to my mouth.

    Bagels are just a way for me to eat cream cheese with me looking like a cream cheese eating freak. Etc.

    I will hunt for a mayonnaise recipe along the lines of destructobot's suggestion.
    If it's better than Hellman's Pure, I gotta have it.

    [jingle] Bring out the Hellman's and bring.. out the best! [/jingle]

    Salad dressing tastes gacky to me.. it's been a while since I tried it though.

    @deathfisaro: You allergic to "good", son!
