So, I've known for a long while that mayonnaise is NOT good for you. I really like I keep getting people that I should replace mayo with mustard because it's healthier. One problem: I hate mustard. Does anyone know of a suitable replacement for mayo that isn't mustard??

Allison provided great advice. They have some healthier versions of mayo out there that might work for you. As for the calories/fat in mayo you know considering how low your calories are Jena you might not be too bad off just keeping it in as you really don't want to take your calories any lower than they currently are. My only thing against mayo is that I believe its pretty high in saturated fat.

* 2 ripe avocados
* 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
* 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional - I don't think it needs it)
* 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
* 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Cut avocados in half. Scoop pulp into a food processor or blender.
Add lime juice and next 4 ingredients; process until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. With processor running, pour oil in a slow, steady stream through food chute; process until smooth. Chill 1 hour. Makes about 1 and 1/4 cups.
It can also be used as a topping for broiled chicken, fish, veggie dip, etc.
