    Cookgirl's Note:

    *THIS IS AN ADOPTED RECIPE AS OF 16 AUGUST 2006.* Pronounced "mayonais-ie" this is one of my favorite food discoveries as a wife of a Brazilian. I have had this served to me at many Brasilian cook-outs, called "churrasco" in Brazil, and have had it in restaurants both in the U.S. and Brazil - This version comes from the kitchen of my wonderful mother-in-law, Dona Alvina. She uses canned corn, but the canned corn in Brazil is different (firmer?) that what I've found in the US, so I use frozen corn.

    • 1 cup mayonnaise, to taste (Best Foods or Hellman's, that's what they have in Brazil)

      I wrote a review an hour ago but forgot my star rating. I loved this salad and it went particularly well with a grilled chicken breast seasoned to the hilt. It tastes identical to the Maionese I used to eat in Brazil, at parties and churrascarias. Brigadao! This took me back instantly, very nice!

      Tried it with a mix of mayo and sour cream- don't like mayo much, and skipped on the corn. (never had it with corn, I will have to try it) and tast-y! All of your recipes are!
