Well, if you feel uncomfortable with eggs, mayonnaise is a good variation.

Tips
If using a raw egg makes you uncomfortable, substitute with 1 cup avocado mayonnaise (or traditional mayonnaise) and omit oil. Keep in mind; this will change the fat content but not the carbohydrates and the dressing will be much thicker so thin with a bit of water if you’d like. If you have difficulty finding avocado oil, a mild olive oil will also work.
