We recommend organic ingredients whenever possible.
I think sweet onions work best with this recipe, although I've used yellow onions in a pinch.
Definitely try to use a higher quality mayonnaise made from real ingredients like Chosen Foods or Primal Kitchen Mayo.
If you don't like mayonnaise or prefer a vegetarian option, try using 1 cup of Whole Milk Greek yogurt plus 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar instead of the mayonnaise.
