Mayonnaise

Skip the mayo with 90 to 125 mg sodium per tablespoon and try creamy, spreadable Greek yogurt for just 10 to15 mg sodium per tablespoon. An infinite number of herbs and spices can create fantastic flavor spreads like garlic-basil, black pepper-chive, or lime-cilantro. For a tangy zip, add a splash of lemon juice to the calcium-rich spread. These flavor combos not only work as a tasty sandwich topping but they double as a creamy dip. One tablespoon of the Yogurt-Tahini Spread on this veggie sandwich has just 12 mg sodium.
