Anyway, salad cream is about to become sandwich cream, I believe.
I was curious as to the distinction between mayonnaise and salad cream. It seems that the relative portions of vegetable oil and vinegar are reversed, so that salad cream has I higher content of vinegar and mayo is oilier. Otherwise, the ingredients are much the same.
I had asked if salad cream were the same as Miracle Whip, a mayonnaise type product here in the US which calls itself a 'salad dressing'. It has a 'zestier' flavor than ordinary mayonnaise. It seems it uses the 'salad dressing' label because it does not contain the required proportion of oil (but, of course, they don't release proprietary information to the public, so we don't know how much) to market it as 'mayonnaise'.
Nah. Miracle whip is whiter, thicker, blander, and (worst) much sweeter than salad cream. If you could somehow take about half the sugar out of miracle whip and add a bit more vinegar, then it would be closer.
I don't mind sugar in sauces - after all tomato ketchup is loaded with the stuff - but salad cream has less as far as I know, and that's what makes it a more refined and adult sauce to eat with chips (fries) or lightly boiled new potatoes.
