...Mayonnaise is a cream colored condiment and thick sauce, or spread. Mayonnaise is made by slowly adding oil to a mixture of raw egg, vinegar and seasonings, until it thickens. This is done by continuously whisking. The flavor is mild, tangy and a bit salty with a comforting quality from the creamy texture. Mayonnaise is a multi-use ingredient for sauces, cold meat salads, sandwiches and more.
...Sriracha is an extremely popular hot sauce that complements many cuisines, particularly those of East Asia. The sauce is a vibrant red color and is easy to squeeze out of the bottle with its semi-thick viscosity. The smell is sweet and spicy and the flavor is similar with a hint of tanginess and garlic. Sriracha tastes very different from any other hot sauce.
