Mayo or salad cream? The battle of the salad sauces is one of the longest running culinary debates, but fear not a new report has now settled this dispute once and for all. Indeed, latest research from MINTEL shows that sales of the more up-market mayonnaise are almost twice that of the traditional British staple, salad cream.This year, Brits will spend no less than £97 million on the white stuff, compared to just £49 million on salad cream. What is more, sales of mayo have increased 10% since 2004, while growth in salad cream has dried up, with sales showing no change what so ever over the same three year period.
