    I don't! But I know people who use both mixed together, apparently you get the taste of the mayo but less syns, I'm not sure what the mix is ie 1/4 mayo to 3/4 FF or what? Think it's trial and error?!

    I use fromage frais all the time instead of mayo now. I season it with salt, pepper and parsley and a splash of white wine vinegar or lemon juice, it is nice when mixed with tuna or chicken.

    I'll agree it's not a creamy but i think it still tastes nice.

    Try it, you might like it!

    Ok well I gave it a go & TBH it was fine really.

    I mixed some salt & pepper into it & then some chilli flake seasoning thing I have in. Ok so it wasn't all creamy & doesn't have the mayo taste but in a roll it was fine. It was missing something though :confused:

    I asked hubby & he said he never even noticed, men :rolleyes:

    I think I will add a splash of vinegar next time after reading that though - good tip!!

    I agree about the vinegar and pepper. Or, I sometimes have it with pickled red cabbage and a spoonful of the pickling vinegar - yum!

    I can't have vinegar so I mix fat free natural yog into my tuna and personally I love it! Just experiment, and see how it goes xxx
