Monday mornings it's Beth & Friends and Food! Beth loves mayonnaise! So this week Jan D'Atri brought in 3 easy to make recipes using mayo!
1. Grilled Mexican Corn with mayo
2) D'Atri's Restaurant Famous Tuna Salad Sandwich with Miracle Whip (People LOVED this sandwich!)
3.) AIOLI with Mayo (With fingerling potatoes to dip)
Grilled Mexican Corn
4 ears corn, shucked
½ cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup grated cotija cheese
Chili powder to taste
4 wedges lime
Grill corn until hot and lightly charred all over.] Spread evenly with mayonnaise. Sprinkle with cotija cheese and chili powder. Serve with a lime wedge.
Lori’s Tuna Salad
2 cans (12 oz) Albacore tuna in water, drained well
½ cup Marzetti Cole Slaw Dressing Lite
½ cup Lite Miracle Whip
1 heaping tablespoon sweet pickle relish
4 teaspoons red onion, diced fine
2 tablespoons celery, chopped fine
½ teaspoon (or more to taste) Lemon Pepper
Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze all of the juice from the albacore tuna and place in a bowl. Add the remainder of the ingredients and mix together. This recipe generally serves about 4 sandwiches or enough for 4 salads.
Cook’s Notes: For the sandwich: At the restaurant we used Orowheat Winter Wheat rolls or slices. The crunchy and hearty texture of this bread seemed to be the perfect complement to Lori’s Tuna Salad.
For the salad, we combined chopped Romaine, finely diced fresh Roma tomatoes and small chunks of gourmet cheeses, blending in sweet balsamic vinaigrette. Over the bed of Romaine, we heaped a generous scoop of Lori’s Tuna Salad right over top.
EASY AIOLI (From www.epicurious.com)
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1/4 teaspoon (or more) coarse kosher salt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Mash garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt in small bowl until paste forms. Whisk in mayonnaise, olive oil, and lemon juice. Season to taste with coarse salt and pepper.
Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.
