Condensed Milk Mayo

Condensed Milk Mayonnaise is a really old fashioned way of making mayonnaise - think back to a time when you couldn't buy mayonnaise or salad dressings. You can use it in a number of different salads, including egg salad, pasta salad or potato salad. It is rather sweeter than expected of the modern dressings, but still a nice standby.


  • 1 tin condensed milk (395g)
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 250ml white vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Combine mustard and salt into condensed milk
  2. add the vinegar and mix well
  3. allow to stand until thick
