I like to use homemade mayonnaise and not reduced fat for this as it is much more creamy and much better ingredients too, you don’t actually need very much.. You can either do the same or use a good quality branded one. If you prefer to use a reduced fat then of course you can do that too, but I can’t comment on the flavour. For a few syns it is worth the better stuff in my opinion.
If you don’t fancy a salad try this topped on a baked potato or if you have a HEb spare, you could use it for a yummy filling for a sandwich.
