Well, I was *going* to post a question...

...but a bit of Google Fu gave me what *might* be a workable answer...

I was just sitting down to lunch - lunch, at the moment, being a bit of bread, a bit of cheese, some cherry tomatoes, and (because I rather love it) a wodge of salad cream. And, as y'do, I decided to have a read of the back of the bottle of salad cream, and - given what I posted about on Monday - I was rather disturbed by the high sugar content. This is a bottle of Heinz. 17.5g of sugars per 100g of salad cream. That's a lot of sugar. And I do like my salad cream, and was going to ask if anybody knew of any low/non-sugar equivalent. Not mayonnaise (which I don't like, 'cos I find it a bit bland), but your actual salad cream.

Couldn't find any, but I did find this recipe, which calls itself "Cornish salad cream," but seems to be about the same as Heinz. It's got sugar in the recipe, but I'm thinking I could get some of the low-GI sugar I had a couple of years back, and substitute that for normal sugar in the recipe.

I think that might work. Of course, it'd be even more useful if it can be kept in the fridge for a week or two. I suspect I'll have a crack at making some this weekend...
