Duke Mayonnaise low carb salad dressing alternative

People on low carb diets some times have difficulties finding low carb salad dressings, but I saw one discussing in Low Carb Life Facebook group where the members were praising Duke Mayonnaise as a good low carb salad dressing alternative.


The first person, named Joey, who started the discussion, called Duke Mayonnaise "best mayo ever! It has 0 carbs for those asking for a salad dressing alternative."

Another person wrote "every southern person was born with a love of Dukes." To this a lady from North Carolina, where I am currently too, replied "oh yes! Definitely Dukes mayonnaise for this NC girl." It looks like Duke Mayonnaise is also popular in Texas for low carb dieters who look for low carb salad dressing alternatives.

"My wife is from Atlanta and won't eat any other brand. We used to have relatives bring us a few jars up from every visit. We recently found it in our local Walmart and that's is literally the only reason I go to that store now," wrote another group member named Rob.

Duke describes its mayonnaise's flavor as smooth with creamy texture with a special one-of-a-kind flavor of Duke’s Mayonnaise, made with Eugenia Duke’s original recipe since 1917. "Duke’s is delicious on sandwiches, in salads, and even as a key baking ingredient," reads the description on the product page.

In fact they have four packaging options: jar, pouch, squeeze and packet. It was surprising to see that their mayonnaise is now available for monthly subscriptions: something that innovative companies do these days.

As I keep reading the group discussions about zero carb salad dressings one of the commenters wrote "Dukes is the only mayo I'll eat. Can you say homemade pimento cheese." Does Duke mayonnaise taste like homemade pimento cheese?

Another person, who seems to have spent some time in Europe and tried the taste of non-gmo organic foods write this. "I don't care for mayo in general, unless it's the mayo I've had in Europe, but Dukes is pretty good here in the states. It makes excellent deviled eggs, I thought."

Now that I wrote about this based on the discussion, I have to confess that I had never cared about Duke Mayonnaise. In fact, I had preferred the mayonnaise that has an olive picture on it, thinking it would have been healthier. I don't even remember the name. But now I am going to try the Duke and see how my salad dressing will taste with this new mayonnaise. What do you use for a zero carb salad dressing alternative?
