Who didn’t grow up with this stuff – spreading it on sandwiches, putting it in salad dressings, feeding it to the dog…? While I was always a “Miracle Whip” kind of gal, the name does not excuse the unhealthy ingredients found in these conventional condiments. This is why without getting into the nasties of the tasty condiment, I am posting this super easy and delicious vegan mayonnaise you can whip up to use in recipes… (Keep your eyes out – a chickpea salad is on its way!)
