    Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:

    I used to be fussy about my tuna salad dressings, since most of the time they tasted too "tinned" or "fishy." This all-purpose dressing from "Cook's Illustrated" is fabulous on all three types of sandwich fillings. Listed are the variations suggested for each filling. Recipe makes 1/4 cup (enough for one 6 ounce can tuna) but can be doubled or tripled.

      I've only tried this with eggs so far, but I'll be trying it with tuna and chicken, too. I made it plain the first time, and then I added some basil. Both were excellent--and I had no idea that basil was such a lovely addition to egg salad! I look forward to trying all the variations of this versatile recipe. Thanks for posting!

      This was a wonderful change from the regular 'mayo' dressing I am used to. Much lighter, but tangy and delicious. Perfect.

      Wow! I love it so much I even used it make a turkey sandwich. The flavors go so well together. I am never going to want plain mayo again.
