Slathered on burgers, stirred into salads, sandwiched between bacon, or simply for dipping, mayonnaise is the defining condiment of many a successful meal.
Or at least, it was, until we discovered this handy food infographic from sheknows with 20 flavourful mayo mix-ins listing some tasty options to give your standard mayonnaise a flavour boost.
Whether you make your own mayonnaise, or go for shop-bought, try making flavoured mayonnaise to add extra spice, heat, colour or zest by mixing in these flavour combinations - from hot and spicy wasabi to zingy pesto.
Carefully fold in the extra ingredients, to avoid over-working your mayo, keeping in mind liquids will make the emulsion thinner, while conversely, adding dry seasonings will help increase the viscosity.
Decide on a signature flavour dip, and your burger and fries and may well take on a whole new dimension.
