As I have written before , when it comes to condiments I cast my vote for mayonnaise. Evidently I’m not alone as mayo has been ranked number one in the highly touted, pay-per-view, over-analyzed condiment competition.
I can’t begin to express my pleasure at learning that Mexico has an entire day of appreciation for mayonnaise, a national holiday in fact. Happy Cinco de Mayo! Roughly translated this means a fifth of mayonnaise – a fifth being an older term, often used to measure alcohol, and refers to a fifth of a gallon.
