Help, I am out of mayo and *need* a sandwich spread

I was stuck on a boat, days away from a cooler-reprovisioning and was forced into creative cooking:

3 tbs Cashew butter mixed in with a diced apple, and a generous helping of your favorite curry seasoning.

this is a super delicious sandwich spread with some chicken breast on whole grain bread.

if we'd had any leftover, I'm sure we could have found other ways to purpose it in a recipe.

    Two good galley/provisioning/recipe books:

    "The Essential Galley Companion," Amanda Swan-Neal. Mahina Expeditions Press.

    "The Boat Galley Cookbook," Carolyn Shearlock and Jan Irons. International Marine/McGraw-Hill.

    The first has been our go-to for years. The second we just picked up this fall at the Annapolis sail show. Met the author at her booth.

    Also by Carolyn Shearlock, "Storing Food Without Refrigeration" has a lot of advice. Blue River Press.

    Happy voyaging.

    PS - your spread sounds interesting; will have to try it.

    Hummus! I also use it with turkey and lettuce wraps. Delicious.

    Avocado mashed up. Also tastes good if you add a teaspoon of Dijon mustard.

    I make tomato jam for my sandwiches. It's got a kick, and it's delicious with chicken or Turkey. Also good with cheese and crackers

    I know this post is very old but if i want to substitute mayo i always use plain yogurt. Plain Greek yogurt is even better if you can find it in your supermarket. You can even use low fat .

    Oh geez, editing now, I just realized this thread may be about sandwich spreads when you don't have access to a refrigerator. I'll leave my post regardless, since, I typed it all out. :)

    Greek yogurt blended with a bit of Whole Grain, Dijon mustard or yellow mustard to taste; optional pinch of paprika, white pepper (or black), tad pinch of sweetener & if needed, salt. If you don't have mustard, a bit of pickle juice from the pickle jar & a pinch of sweetener to cut the sourness works also. I make a mild horseradish blend also.

    Softened from refrigeration, Nuefchatel (cream cheese) sprinkled with seasonings is a really nice variation to mayo.

    I have even used ricotta cheese when I am in a hurry & don't feel like messing with anything.

    >>> For Amy, on the boat without a fridge/cooler. That spread sounds wonderful! I enjoy mild curry in unordinary ways, just a pinch in even sweet dishes is really nice!

    In a bind, if the bread is hearty & dense, I would bet a very thin layer of healthy oil & either sweet or savory seasonings/spices, might be tasty on a sandwich too. :) <<<

    2 tablespoon sour cream with 1 teaspoon dijon mustard. Sprinkle a bit of scallion or chives on top if you have any.
    Greek yogurt with a bit of finely diced cucumber also makes a delicious option.

    I've tried peanut butter on a variety of sandwich types, and it works on practically everything.
