I love mayonnaise solo but it can be even more versatile and zingy when spiced up with something like kimchi. Kimchi adds a slight heat, not overwhelming, that really links up beautifully with the eggy notes in mayonnaise. Use this on burgers, grilled chicken, fried eggs, a BLT, roasted vegetables, cabbage slaw or a chopped vegetable salad. I make this and keep it, covered, in the door of my fridge when I need some variety or a healthy boost of flavor from an unusual place. Don’t want any extra heat? Simply omit the hot sauce.



  1. In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, kimchi, some of the kimchi liquid, hot sauce, red wine vinegar and Worcestershire. Taste for seasoning.
