Cilantro Mayo...


Sometimes the easiest way to spice up something old and familiar (i.e. the everyday burger) is to change its clothing. Cilantro mayo gives burgers a Southwestern spin along with a healthy dose of attitude. Of course you could also slather it over grilled corn with some crumbled cotija cheese for a great-off-the-grill side dish. Oh the fun of accessorizing!

Cilantro Mayo

1/2 cup light or regular mayo
large handful of cilantro, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon Sriracha, or more if you like more heat
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Combine all ingredients and keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Will keep for up to two days well covered in the fridge.

Spot on with the gussying up of the mayo. So many variations are possible.

It is just SO TRUE! It's the little things you do that takes ordinary food and soars it to new levels! This would be great on SO MANY things!

I so agree - little changes to old favorite make a huge difference. This mayo looks awesome - I bet it would be great for dipping some fries into as well (I am a mayo and french fries girl!)

Great idea! I made some chipotle mayo last month and we just ran out. I'll have to try this next!
