A simple turkey, club or tuna salad sandwich can be jazzed up and turned into something special with the addition of a better bread spread. Mayonnaise is a great sandwich spread all by itself, but when you want to jazz up those routine sandwiches, mix one-half cup of plain mayonnaise with the ingredients below to create any one of these 13 better bread spreads.
Each bread spread can be made ahead of time and kept refrigerated in an air tight container for up to two weeks. The bread spread flavors will intensify after sitting overnight and can be used as a salad ingredient instead of plain mayonnaise or mustard. Heat the bread spreads in the microwave to make unquie dipping sauces for chicken or bread sticks. Add more or less of each ingredient to suit individual tastes.
