Hi Strands fans. A moderately tricky one until you get your first word on the board, then it's plain sailing. The presence of not one, but two Zs was particuarly intriguing.

Initially, I thought "Pour it on" refered to either wines (a relief it wasn't, as I know nothing about wines) or something like breakfast cereals. However, when I spotted SRIRACHA in the top-right corner, I quickly realized it was one of my favorite topics: condiments!

Indeed, I found the spangram - CONDIMENT - immediately afterwards, and then nothing gave me any trouble. TZATZIKI was the cause of those two Zs, and that left MAYO as the only word on the right-hand side.

It was simple to mop up the left side. KETCHUP came first, then AIOLI. It didn't take long to figure out that MUDSRAT was an anagram of MUSTARD to complete the puzzle.
