Mayonnaise is one of the most common accompaniments that people serve with their food. While it is possible to make this yourself at home, most people simply buy this sauce in a jar or squeezy bottle. Even if you buy the premade version, there are many ways that you can make this sauce more exciting and transform it to better suit the dish with which it is served. Here are 10 ways to transform mayonnaise.

Mustard Mayonnaise

Just add a teaspoon of your preferred variety of mustard to the mayonnaise. This is delicious with ham or beef dishes. 

Garlic Mayonnaise

To add extra flavour to the mayonnaise, simply grate one clove of garlic and add. 

Chilli Mayonnaise

For those who like a little spice, try adding one chopped fresh chilli to the mayonnaise. Add a little less for a lightly spiced mayonnaise and more if you are a fan of spicy food. 

Sweet Chilli Mayonnaise

If you like lots of flavor but a little less spice, add one teaspoon of sweet chilli sauce.

Curried Mayonnaise

Another way of adding extra flavor is to add half a teaspoon of curry powder to the mayonnaise. 

Lemon Mayonnaise

Lemon mayonnaise is delicious with seafood and chicken. Simply squeeze in a little lemon juice and stir. 

Horseradish Mayonnaise

As an accompaniment to a beef salad, spoon some horseradish into the mayonnaise to add both flavour and heat.

Seafood Sauce 

Traditionally served with prawn cocktail but equally good with any seafood, it is easy to create your own seafood sauce using mayonnaise as a base. Just add tomato sauce, black pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice. 

Smoky mayonnaise

Half a teaspoon of smoked paprika creates an unusual alternative.
