condiments - like and not like
This is my list of condiments that I like and do not like:
mustard - like (all kinds) especially sweet/hot and horseradish, but even ordinary bright yellow hot dog mustard is fine. I like mustard with egg salad, and on grill cheese sandwiches. Mustard is good.
ketchup - don't like - not on hot dogs, but once in a while on mac and cheese or with french fries, but really, french fries deserve mustard/mayonnaise
wasabi - like like like the nicest shocking surprise. WOOOOOOO!
mayonnaise - like (when it is tinted with mustard) or in sushi, otherwise neutral, not on anything hot
salsa - like - hotter the better - also good with eggs (try mango salsa, mmmm)
chutney - like - don't get this often because I'm the only one in the house who eats it, but it is good
soy sauce - like - was surprised to find out that only European people put soy sauce on plain rice
teriyaki sauce - like, but not my first choice
mint sauce - don't like - poured over beef, it smells like socks
hollandaise sauce - don't like - too gooey and fussy to cook, use salsa instead
pesto - like like like like - on pretty much anything, well, maybe not on ice cream. Come to think of it, I have not tried pesto on ice cream, so I can't really say
salt and pepper - like - highly underrated as seasoning/condiments
sweet chili sauce - like much, on most food, looks like a lava lamp, tastes like a circus
balsamic vinegar - like with veg or bread, tangy and deep
olive oil - like very much, especially with balsamic vinegar, or plain, on pasta with salt and pepper
caesar salad dressing - like, but must be careful, does not like me
ranch dressing - don't like - reminds me of a boring person wearing a flashy hat for attention
cheeze whiz - don't like - tastes like it sounds (something not for eating)
relish - like - it is made with pickles so it is, by definition, good
That's all for now.
question: which condiments do you like and not like?
mompoet - complimenting most condiments because most condiments complement compliments
