  2. MickS profile image72
    MickSposted 5 years ago

    It depends on which food you are refering. I don't eat mayonaise, I like a simple oil and vinegar dressing on salad, I prefer tomato and brown sauces on fish and chips, hoseradish with mustard on beef, redcurrant sauce on duck, cranberry sauce on turkey, and apple sauce on pork.  I have no favourites, to me, those that I've mentioned are my preferences for a particular food stuff, I don't like one over another, you ask this question as if they are the only sauces available.

      Not to be confused with bologna, I think this is a baloney question about basic condiments...  Blah!

      I was strictly looking at the condiments, but now that you mentioned sauces, that opens up another world.  Thanks.

      Do you belive that vinegar is not a condiment or that ketchup is not a sauce, they are all condiments, sauces, or traclements, take your pick.

    Good question! Mustard goes good with just about everything.

    I'll take a good spicy mustard anyday. I never use ketchup and have really cut down on mayo.

    It depends on what I'm eating. I love them all equally, so I guess its a 3-way tie for me.

    1. aviannovice profile image91
      aviannoviceposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Do you ever use them all together?

    2. Sarah Christina profile image84
      Sarah Christinaposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Only on hot dogs do I use all 3 together. For sandwiches, just mayo and mustard. For fries, just ketchup. For mashed/baked potatoes, I add mayo sometimes. I also like ketchup on my scrambled eggs and hash-browns. So it really depends on the food.

    Mustard no doubt. I actually hate both of those other condiments. I have learned as an adult to tolerate mayo, but I still can't stand ketchup. I even hate the smell.

    1. aviannovice profile image91
      aviannoviceposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Do you use all types of mustard, or just the standard yellow?

    2. profile image72
      ElleBeeposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I actually don't like standard yellow very much, but I'll usually use a small amt if its the only thing available.  I like the spicy brown mustard, dijon or honey mustard

    It's changed through the years. As a little kid it was the standard ketchup on everything, then I added mayo to my repetoirre(spelling?). But now that I am trying to be more health conscience I like to go with Mustard.

    I use mayo and Trader Joe's great Aioli Garlic Mustard sauce on every sandwich I eat, and ketchup only on fries or maybe hashbrowns.

      aviannoviceposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      That is one that I never heard about before...I will have to look for that aoili sauce.  I have the butter at work for flatbreads, but I should experiment with it, eh?

    it depends on what I'm eating at the time. those fat frys need ketchup, hot dogs or hambugers need ketchup, mustard, and onions, Ham gets mayo, horshradish.
    tomatoe sandwiches get just mayo

    On sandwiches I prefer a hint of mayo with mustard.  For fries, ketchup.  As a dip for breaded fish or shrimp, I mix mayo & kechup together.

    If you must choose a dressing and wish to put health first then the best of all the sauces is ketchup.
    It is loaded with antioxidants, and in its ketchup form is better than uncooked tomatoes. Indeed cooked tomatoes of any type are better than uncooked.
    Its like blueberries. beetroot etc a superpower food.

      I was thinking about making a ketchup instead of using the commercial, though organic, variety.

    knallison88posted 5 years ago

    It all depends on what I am putting it on... Mayo and Ketchup on sandwiches, but I put Ketchup on everything else in reasonable. But I hate Mustard, I can't stand the smell of it. For the longest time I didn't like Pickle Relish either but now I do.

    It all depends on what I am eating. I love mayo on a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. I love to mix ketchup and mustard when eating fries. I love using mustard in vinaigrettes and love putting ketchup on top of meatloaf. --Deb

      The French Canadians have gravy with their fries, sometimes just vinegar.  When I ate meat, I'd put both ketchup and mustard on the meatloaf.

      Did you know that you can make ketchup with other fruits as well as the tomato?  It is just a matter of spices.

    It depends entirely on what I am eating with it. Mayo with my tuna, mustard with my roast beef, and ketchup with my kraft dinner. If I tried to substitute one for another my meals would taste pretty funky.

      Those sound like good choices.  I see what you mean about using something else with the old standbys!
