    I need a little bit of advice please :)
    I love making potato salad, at the mo I'm having it for lunches made with potatoes, spring onion, red pepper, bacon, hard boiled egg then salad cream mixed in. Only problem is that I loveeee salad cream and using up syns on this, is there anything I can mix with it to make it go further so I'm not using too many syns?
    Thanks in advance x

    I mix it with 0% Greek natural yoghurt - still tastes like salad cream but goes that bit further x

    What about the salad cream 'light' versions? I much prefer them to the mayo 'light' versions out there!

    Thanks for that...guess what I am taking to work for tea tonight!

    I did think though you could do the same thing with savoury rice and as it's quite moist you wouldn't need as much salad cream! Not quite like a potato salad but there you go!

    Many moons ago I had a boyfriend that was a chef in a posh hotel and he taught me to just add a little water to mayo / salad cream when making potato salads.

    I'm a salad cream fiend too and totally resent having to use my syns for it!!

    Someone did a tremendous tuna pasta salad and mixed 2 tbsp of extra light mayo (1syn)and 1 tbsp fat free natural yogurt.

    I tried fat free yog in my salad cream and it's dead nice!!!

    I love salad cream too but I hate the vinegary taste of the lighter version so I mix mine with a little fromage frais - on occasion natural yogurt - it also makes the ex low mayo go a lot further if you're like me and love loads of the stuff!

    Thanks for all the great ideas, I've got some fat free natural yog in the fridge so will be trying that when I get in from work. Glad to see I'm not the only salad cream lover haha :)
