Tangy and creamy, with a fiery hook…

One of our faves as a sandwich spread, spicy creole aioli is brimming with flavor. It’s mayo creamy, but there’s a spicy mustard tang to the taste that’s just delicious. Don’t limit this spread to sandwich duty. You can use it as a dipping sauce or as a topper to seafood. We like it very much on salmon.

Cayenne pepper powder adds a little extra punch beyond the creole mustard (which often already contains a little cayenne). Feel free to adjust the amount used to match your spice tolerance.
