Cajun Mayo

This is one of my favorite dipping sauces of all times. This Cajun Mayo is not just a dipping sauce but makes up for an amazingly delicious spread too. I was first introduced to Cajun Mayo, at BBQ Nation in India. Their cajun potatoes were my absolute favorite back in the day. Now its been years since I visited India.

Cajun Mayo is an easy sauce made with Cajun Seasoning Mix, Mayo and Olive Oil. I use my homemade Cajun Seasoning, I will leave the link here for you to check it out, but feel free to use store bought too.

Can we make this Vegan / Eggless Sauce?

This sauce can be made Vegan, using Vegan Mayonnaise. If you don’t eat eggs, there are eggless options available too and can be found easily at your local grocery store.

Ways to Use this Sauce

I use Cajun Mayo as a dipping sauce to my fries or as a spread to my naans and bread to make pizzas and sandwiches.
