Mayo is a very popular condiment. Aside from the classic tuna and egg salads made with mayo, many people include it in every sandwich. The fact that it is also parve means even we kosher keepers can include it at every meal and there some people that do.

On Passover, regular mayo which is often made with canola oil is not available and instead the Passover versions don't quite compare. On a holiday when every ingredient matters, it is best to try something with a little more pizazz. Avocado is always a good all natural choice, but you still have to mash it up and some flavor. For something even more like mayo, try Babaganoush.

Sabra Babagnoush is made with mayo and is made kosher for Passover without losing any of it's great taste and texture. The roasted eggplant even displaces some of the fat compared to pure mayo, so that is a bonus.
