Medianoche Mayonnaise

Literally “midnight” mayonnaise, this is offered as a late-night Cuban sammich spread (hence ‘midnight’).

I came across it somewhere or other a few years back, and it all finally made sense!

I mean, I have always liked the idea of a Cuban sammich – ham, pork, cheese, pickle, and mustard – grilled until the cheese is nicely melted.


Where’s the mayonnaise?

Then, I discovered this easy to make option, and then I discovered how very, very good it is on so much more than a ham sammich.

•1 cup mayonnaise
•1/4 cup Italian dressing
•1 tbsp Cajun Power Spicy Garlic Pepper Sauce – or your fave hot sauce, to taste

Add the ingredients to a bowl or an immersion blender beaker, then whisk (or blend) until smooth.

Note: to use this as a salad dressing, mix in two tablespoons of sour cream.

Transfer to a jar, cover, then stash in the fridge for a few hours to allow the flavor to develop before using.

On a sammich? Sure.

In a salad (with that added sour cream)?
Of course, but…

Consider brushing it on swordfish, the air frying or grilling.
