Sometime I find recipes in rather unusual places.   But, hey, if it sounds good, who cares where it came from.  I happened upon this recipe in the “South Beach Diet” book.  I love flavored mayonnaise and this one sounded so delicious with the combination of lime and cilantro.  I just had to give it a try.

It turned out to be so flavorful and good!  What I also love is that the lime juice thins the mayo out a little bit, so not only is it perfect for spreading on a sandwich, it’s also the perfect consistency for dipping veggies in.  Oh…and did I mention it takes about 2 minutes to make?  So if you happen to have a spare 2 minutes, give this a try and dress up your next sandwich!

Cilantro Mayonnaise

  • 3/4 cup light mayonaise
  • 3/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 tsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • juice of half a lime

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor.  Blend until smooth.

Spread on sandwiches or use as a dip for veggies.
