Instead of wasabi powder, I used prepared wasabi paste and mixed it with the mayo. This is absolutely delicious with seared Tuna steaks. Adds just the right amount of creaminess and spiciness. Delish!

This is a great beginning to a recipe, but the wasabi powder to water ratio is off, and should roughly be reversed. To make a proper wasabi paste from scratch you need much more wasabi paste than water. the recipe calls for 1:2 it should be closer to 2:1. Then, after allowing the paste to set, add the mayonnaise and then, according to your desire add additional water. You simply cannot make wasabi past with 2 parts water to 1 part wasabi.

Do NOT use Miracle Whip in this recipe. I did and it is way too sweet. I added horseradish & dijon mustard to fix the problem, but next time I'll be sure I have real mayo in the house.

Perfect! I haven't been able to make my famous wasabi pasta salad ever since Trader Joe's discontinued their wasabi mayo. Now I can finally make my salad again! Thank you so so much.

I thought this was a great recipe! I served it as a dip with sweet potato fries. Most of my guests were timid to try the unlikely combination but soon after the first bite were requesting the recipe. Strongly reccommend!

Yum! I used wasabi paste (1 tablespoon) with 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise and it was perfect! I had it on both sides of a thin bun with a piece of Maple Salmon (from AR) inbetween -- and it was DELICIOUS! We will definitely be serving this with A LOT of dishes from now on. Even the kids loved their hotdogs dipped in it!

Delicious. I also used the wasabi paste and eyeballed everything to taste and It came out really good. Also added a splash of shoyu (soy sauce). Next time Im going to try adding garlic powder or chopped garlic. Very good with furukaki encrusted salmon and salmon patties. ***UPDATE*** tried it with garlic powder and it was awesome. No measuring was done, just to your own taste. So I used wasabi paste, soy sauce, mayo and garlic powder. Mix and enjoy! Yumm

Loved the recipe! I did change it though, I doubled the recipe and used half mayo and half sour cream. And both the mayo and the sour cream were "light." I served it with seared salmon and my husband gobbled it down!
