My Mayonnaise Jar

Ever tried scooping the dregs of mayonnaise out of the jar? Never fun. Some useful techniques are spoons, spatulas or turning the jar upside down so gravity can work in your favor. 
Mayonnaise - before and after
Technique Two requires a bit more time, but saves dinner every day. Just grab the vinegar, olive oil and some spices and turn an "empty jar" into a gold mine!

Dietitians hate it, men love it... it's the  mayonnaise-based dressing. Preparing a salad is part of my daily dinner preps, so having a dressing handy is a great bonus. I'll give you the official recipe that I follow, though I generally just pour 'till I'm bored. Turns out different (but yummy) each time.

1/2 cup mayonnaise 
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp. lemon juice (vinegar is a good substitute)
2 Tb sugar (I usually skip)
Freshly crushed or powdered garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Oregano or 2 Tb soy sauce*

*This dressing is really a two-for-one. If you want Caesar Salad Dressing, use the Oregano. If you'd prefer a different flavor (like for Flat Bread Salad) use the Soy Sauce. 

Tastiest Mayonnaise Dressing

Credit for this idea goes to an amazing Chabad House in California where the Shabbos meal attendance was well over 50 people for years and years. They regularly used the same technique, albeit on a much larger scale.
