Sub for Mayo in a sandwich dressing

I am not a big fan of Mayo or most things mayo based. Now I understand the need for fat to prevent the bread from getting soggy that is ussually played by the part of the mayo. So what can I use that is not mayo based that will provide the requisite fat to prevent the bread from getting soggy.

You could use cheese or lettuce leaves.

Ranch? I sometimes use a smear of gravy on a turkey sandwich.

Traditionally, you can use salad dressing (eg. Miracle Whip or an equivalent) which is NOT mayo. Or you could use butter. Butter is a very common substitute for mayonnaise, and I prefer it to mayo in several types of sandwiches.

depending on the sandwich, ill sometimes put a smear of sour cream on the bread, just to give it that " i put something like mayo on it" feel. Im not a big fan of mayo either. But when I make a provolone cheese hoagie, even with the salad dressing on it ( i prefer good seasons italian) it still feels like its missing something ( the mayo), so i smear the sour cream just to give it that fat feel.

As i am strictly kosher I would like to avoid using dairy as we do not mix milk and meat in the same dish. I know miracle whip is not mayo but it is mayo like.

It is whipped vegetable oil and has no dairy products in it:

Water, soybean oil, vinegar, sugar, modified corn starch, eggs, salt, mustard, flour paprika, spices, dried garlic, preservatives (potassium sorbate, etc.)

And I have a Jewish lady friend who only eats Kosher, and she allows herself the use of this kind of product, which she makes a version of her own without the eggs.

You could also consider the use of olive oil.

If u dont want dairy, and depending on the kind of sandwich it is, u could always mash up an avocado until creamy and smooth ( add a little salt) and smear that on the bread. Or maybe even some hummus too ( again , depending on the sandwich)
