Family Central: The Ojai Cook® LEMONAISE®

I’ve seen you do a “double take” when you pass FRESH’s Ojai Cook’s LEMONAISE® section. You may have pondered or contemplated on just what the heck that stuff is about.

LEMONAISE® is a refreshing citrus-mustard mayonnaise! According to the website, “LEMONAISE® offers the most original, palate-pleasing variety of lemon-infused flavored mayonnaise. It’s mayo – with a twist! LEMONAISE® truly deserves the distinction of ‘gourmet mayonnaise.’

LEMONAISE® is all-natural with no preservatives, and it is made from only the highest quality of ingredients like pure expeller pressed canola oil and the finest herbs and spices. Additionally, there is real health-conscious appeal, including low or no cholesterol, carbohydrates or sodium; no trans fats; gluten-free; and most flavors are unsweetened. LEMONAISE® awakens the taste buds and will invigorate and energize any food or recipe calling for mayonnaise.” These jars of yum are also certified kosher by the Orthodox Union.

The website also claims that “there are ‘a zillion ways’ to use LEMONAISE® and that it’s “terrific as a sandwich spread, in dips, as garnishes, as an ingredient in dressings or sauces, and complements beef, chicken, seafood and vegetables.”

Here is one of Martha Stewart’s favorite recipes with LEMONAISE®!

LEMONAISE® Tuna Salad Sandwiches

12 oz good-quality tuna, packed in oil, drained
2 stalks celery, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced

On a work surface, divide tuna salad among 4 slices of bread; top with remaining 4 slices of bread. Serve.
