    Is this correct? You are using a pint of mayo for 4 carrots and 4 stalks of celery? That means that each serving (if there are 4 in the recipe) your family members are getting 1 carrot, 1 stalk of celery and 4 oz. (a half cup) of mayo. That seems like a lot. Just checking to see if this is a correct measurement.

      Lizzie thanks for pointing it out it is suppose to be about 8 sticks of garlic and 8 carrots. We are trying to get everything moved still and it takes much time and proof reading so thank you for pointing our “boo boos’ out. It is now fixed.

      Jan not sure what recipe you are talking about but this one says 8 stalks of celery. Maybe I over looked something but I couldn’t find where you are talking about.

    When you find a recipe that looks off such as requiring too much mayonnaise, hold back on a part of the “offending” ingredient. If the resulting mixture doesn’t look right, add more of the ingredient you held off on. I frequently make cole slaw. Sometimes I use lots more mayonnaisse than others, probably depending on the juicyiness of the cabbage.

      You can also can add a tablespoonful or so of milk to many mayo based salads. That way you help with the dryness without adding as much of the “offending” ingredient. Although now they are doing studies and finding many of the things they said were “offending” ingredients aren’t as bad if bad at all as they once lead us to believe. I say add all the mayo you want but just eat in moderation.

    Whenever I make a mayo based salad I substitute at least half of the mayo with plain, unflavored fat free yogurt. Cut’s the calories and adds a nice tang. Works really well in my chicken salad with grapes, walnuts and dill.

    I should have said ingredient in question, not offending ingredient. Remember it’s easy to make a recipe wetter. It’s a lot harder to make it dryer if you used too much liquid, mayonnaise or fat.
