Sponsored: More Than Mayo and Mustard ... Expanding Your Condiment Range

Condiments are “…edible food items added to a dish or a meal…not strictly necessary but serve to enhance the flavor.” Often when we think of condiments we automatically mention mayonnaise, mustard, relish and ketchup but there are so many other condiments that can be used to compliment dishes that you make at home.

Here are a few that you can find at Ingles:

Salsas • Sriracha sauce (spicy) • BBQ sauces • Chutneys • Coleslaw

You can even make spreads into condiments:

• Guacamole or peeled, sliced and mashed avocado as a spread for toast or sandwiches

• Nut or fruit (apple) butters as a spread

• Cottage or ricotta cheese blended with seasoning spices or honey as a spread

Or how about combining some for the perfect taste:

• Old Bay seasoning + Mayo + Lemon to top your fish sandwich or taco

• Sriracha sauce + Mayo + Lime + Chopped cilantro for pork or tempeh sandwiches

(Tip: Combine part plain Greek yogurt with part mayo to cut calories)
