Making Cranberry Mayonnaise

Cranberry mayonnaise is a flavorful spread to add onto any boring turkey sandwich, and this festive mixture is easy to whip up. Just start off with your store-bought mayonnaise. You can use either the real mayo or the low-fat, whichever you prefer.

Cranberry Mayonnaise Recipe

Ingredients You Will Need:
1¼ cup canned Jelly cranberry sauce
¼ cup mayonnaise

Mix both ingredients together in a blender. Then scoop the mayo mixture into a jar or plastic container. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving. If you decide to use low-fat mayo, this is a reasonably health-conscious spread to add onto a whole wheat and turkey sandwich.

For a simple twist, try making cranberry pecan mayonnaise. Take the ½ cup of mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon honey, salt and pepper to taste, ½ cup canned jelly cranberry sauce and 2 tablespoons toasted pecans. Combine the mayo, mustard, salt, pepper and honey first in a blender. Then fold in the cranberry and pecans.

Roasted Turkey Sandwich
Take two slices of whole wheat bread, and spread your mayonnaise on one piece. Take some roasted turkey and place it on top. Then add a slice of smoked gouda cheese, 2 cooked slices of bacon, lettuce and tomato. Close the sandwich and cut it in half.

Turkey Roll-Up
Take a flour tortilla, and slather it with the cranberry mayo. Then stick in some slices of roasted turkey, arugula, and Jarlsberg cheese. Add on a few slices of tomatoes and some lettuce as well. Sprinkle it with some extra salt and pepper, and roll the wrap up. You can cut it into smaller slices and assemble on a platter. This is an ideal recipe for cocktail parties or work functions.
