The refrigerator light goes on...

I like grilled salmon so much and to put anything on it is a bit like gilding the lily, but this mayonnaise is so versatile. You can use most any herb that you like chives, thyme, basil.

Capers

These are the flower bud of a bush from the family Capparidaceae. Cultivated in the hot climates of the Mediterranean and Asia, the immature flowers are picked and then pickled in vinegar brine. They are bland when raw but pickled capers are pungent with a sharp piquant flavor.
