IMG_20160228_144013This tasty condiment is so versatile that it can be used to replace both sour cream and mayo!

 

Mrs. Love Chard and I have enjoyed it on Nutritarian paninis, creamed cucumbers, a topper for loaded baked sweet potatoes, an addition to a hearty bowl of taco salad, as a cream for soups, and have added ground cayenne or hot sauce of choice to make spicy mayo for sushi.

 

We also love using this as a base for homemade salad dressings: blend with fruit, vinegar, spices, and herbs.
