Welcome to my little world- I am thrilled that you are here.

Is it possible to maintain a vegetarian lifestyle below the Mason Dixon line? Come along with me and find out as I pound the pavement, travel and eat my way through life. Cheers!

1 tbsp. mayonnaise
3 tbsp grated cucumber, drained well with a paper towel
1 tsp finely chopped green onions, with tops
1 drop food coloring

Hi Swapna! You could use creme fraiche or maybe greek yogurt as a substitute. It would change the flavor a bit but I am sure it would still taste delicious!
