    ~Nimz~'s Note:

    This comes from The Cuisine of California cookbook and was given to me by --Sheri-- in the last cookbook swap. This is great to kick up any kind of sandwich. I've also used it on a shrimp and avocado salad. It may be kept up to 5 days in refrigerator.

      I love making different mayonnaises and this one has a lot of great flavors that really complement each other. I used the jarred roasted pepper and 5 cloves of garlic. The cayenne really puts it over the top. However, the consistency was not as thick as I would like it. It seemed more like salad dressing. I did mix it with some tuna for a deliciously spicy garlic tuna salad.

      Terrific Recipe. The combination of pimiento and cayenne pepper really complimented each other. I will definitely make this again. Snuck it in on hamburgers and everyone loved it. TFS, ~V
