    Avocado works for me, either that or greek yogurt. Unfortunately mayo just sucks all the way around unless you take the time to make it yourself.

      I haven't found one. And I've scoured the shelves at Whole Foods.

      Besides, even if the oil is not some scary industrial crap, it's usually in a clear jar just sitting there on the shelf going rancid.

          Homemade mayo... duck fat or schmaltz mayo in deviled eggs is very good. Or substitutes like avocado... personally I like a mix of avocado and greek yoghurt. The greek yoghurt (or sour cream I suppose, if you wanted) adds a creaminess and zing that the avocado lacks.

          Play with it until you find the combo you like... The avocado yields special "Zombie Eggs" as my son dubbed them because they're greenish. He likes a slice of olive on top to complete the picture. LOL
          Very tasty!

            There was a post on Food Renegade about how store-bought mayo and how even the spectrum brand olive oil mayonnaise was mostly soy/canola. Wilderness Family Naturals makes an expensive mayo w/ no soy or canola that you can order online.

                The Wilderness Family Naturals mayo is really good. I get it through azurestandard.com. I used to make my own but I'm so busy lately.

                  For the amount I use - a few tablespoons per week - I use my non-primal housemate's Best Foods (Hellmann's back east). Meh. It tastes good and being the most popular mayo, it moves fast through the store.

                    Whole Foods (in texas) has cold pressed canola oil mayo that is really good. I've eaten lots of deviled eggs and tuna salad with that mayo in it.

                      I was fed up with not finding any so I did make my own. Very easy once you get past the curdle danger, egg yolk, garlic and extra virgin olive oil, very yellow, and quite strong tasting due to the olives but yummy all the same and it keeps in the fridge happily

                        I have yet to find a soybean-free brand that tastes decent, so I stick with my beloved Hellman's Light mayo. There's just something about Hellman's flavor that I really like. One of these days I'm may make the long trip to Whole Foods to see if their mayo is any good.

                          Nope no primal mayo anywhere on Whole Food's shelves. Checked every brand. No thanks!

                            You can use heavy whipping cream in place of the mayo in deviled eggs.

                              We bought a $30 food processor on Amazon just to make mayo. It has never failed once, and it only takes a few minutes to make.

                              1 egg
                              1 tablespoon acv
                              1 teaspoon mustard powder
                              salt and pepper
                              any other seasonings you like

                              drizzle in 1 cup of olive oil while blending

                              We use this mayo as a base for dressings and also make awesome tuna and chicken salads!
