Easy and Fun Summer Salads

Using mayo to add a creamy twist

Mayonnaise is the perfect condiment to add a velvety and creamy element to any dish. Used with the correct ingredients, it transforms a plain meal into something decadent and indulgent. Salads that contain mayonnaise are a much-loved summer food and can be eaten on bread, on a bed of greens, or simply on their own. Rather than turning to the usual tuna fish salad recipe, use mayo more creatively this summer. These five recipes provide a new and fresh way to use mayonnaise to create simple summer salads that will satisfy your taste buds.
