I like adding minced onion and capers. I use tomato paste instead of chili sauce and catsup, then it isn't so sweet. I also use finely chopped garlic dill pickles instead of relish, but that's because the relish here is a disgusting dayglo colour. No MSG in mine.

On this recipe I dont add anything since this is the original recipe and everyone raves about the sauce. The little bit of MSG in ACCENT doesnt bother me. Not something I eat every day.

Accent is 100% MSG, I think.

I use MSG a lot (not Accent) but even to me a half teaspoon of Accent to a cup of mayo sounds like an awful lot. I'd use a tiny pinch.

I haven't been to a Big Boy in 30 years!! I used to love them.

I don't use MSG except for this recipe. I know the newer studies on MSG seem to indicate that it is not healthy for those who have high BP/heart conditions, etc. But, ok once in a while for the rest of us. The same as using salt. (I don't know. I just don't use it except here.)

Home Made Mayonnaise or Ali Oli

Buon Giorno, Good Morning.

I cannot use bottled mayonnaise as I am allergic to it ...

So, I have become an expert in preparing home made Ali Oli or home made Mayonnaise & dressings depending on recipe and cuisine ...

I have also learnt to prepare my own Ketchup ... I prepare a Spicy Tomato Smoked Spanish Paprika Sauce for my PATATAS BRAVAS - in the Potato or Ethnic Section; double fried Potatoes, a popular tapa throughout Spain, with Brava Sauce ...

Thousand Island as well as Green Goddess are truly lovely with Fresh grilled prawns or shrimp too ...

In Puglia, I enjoy dipping my langoustines into the dip ... I like my Thousand Island and Green Goddess, quite a bit thicker, as I use them for dipping the fresh grilled shrimp ... NICE ...

Ciao.
Have lovely month of August.
Margaux Cintrano.
