The Old Empty Mayo Jar Dressing Trick – Scrap the Scrape!

They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade; but what
about when life gives you empty mayonnaise jars? Mayonade? No, of course not.
We’re going to make salad dressing instead, and “scrape the scrape.”


I’ll often add a tablespoon or two of mayonnaise when I make
a vinaigrette, to help emulsify things, as well as provide a little extra
creaminess to the dressing. With that in mind, when I get down to the end of a
jar, I don’t scrape, I shake.

I’m posting the ingredients I used below just in case you’re
curious, but this post isn’t really about a recipe, but simply a tip for using
up the last of that mayo without all that annoying butterknifing. Now, I just need to
work on a recipe for using up the last of the dressing clinging to the inside
of the jar. Enjoy!


Ingredients for 1 1/2 cups of dressing:
1 empty mayo jar, with at least 1 tbsp of mayo inside
1 clove minced garlic
1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (I used parsley, thyme, and
chives)
1/2 cup wine vinegar
1 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
cayenne to taste
pinch of Herbes de Provence
