Mayonnaise, This Is A Love Letter (PHOTOS)

Let's put an end to the blind hatred of this condiment.

We know mayonnaise is one of those condiments that people have strong feelings about. It's hated more than any other food. But what we don't understand is why. How could anyone be opposed to this condiment that gives us aioli, deviled eggs and even BLTs? It's just not right. If you have a problem with condiment hatred, leave mayonnaise alone and take it out on ketchup instead. Think about it: what has ketchup ever done for us except mask the flavor of perfectly good fries and burgers?

We're just going to put it out there: we love mayonnaise. We like it store-bought and homemade. We want it on our sandwiches, with our fries, on our grilled cheeses, in our potato salad, mixed into our lobster rolls, for making egg salad, and all over our faces. We love mayo in all of its uses, all of the time. If you're not yet convinced about the awesomeness that is this magical egg-and-oil based spread, read on and maybe you'll finally understand why mayonnaise is tops when it comes to condiments.

Note: this is not the view of the entire Huffington Post Taste team. Actually, this is just the opinion of one sole editor who just doesn't understand people's beef with mayonnaise.
