While most folks consider mayonnaise to be a condiment, any half-way decent chef will tell you that, technically, it’s a sauce. Beautiful in its simplicity, mayo is nothing more than egg whites, oil, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. That’s it. On the other hand, Miracle Whip — mayo’s cheaper cousin — adds vinegar and sweeteners to the recipe, which gives it a provocatively different flavor that doesn’t come close to real mayonnaise.
The bottom line: Whether you like the stuff or not, Miracle Whip is not mayonnaise — and that’s why a proper tuna sandwich is never made with it. Ever.
