I only gave this three stars, because while this is good with some modifications, if you follow the directions exactly it's not really worth eating. The first thing you need to do is add more mayonaise--three tablespoons just isn't enough to make it creamy. I also used sweet pickle relish instead of the dill pickles. The sweet pickle relish mixes better, adding consistency and flavor throughout the salad. I would suggest adding the ingredients to your own tastes, and not following the suggested amounts.


Very good "basic" chicken salad that you can but in your own additions based on your tastes. I made this for my husband to take to work, so no additions needed. I used a bit more mayo and used a bit of onion powder vs. onion. And, like others I used sweet pickle relish vs. chopping dill pickles. I put this into a tortilla along with some lettuce, tomato and a couple of slices of bacon for a really good wrap sandwich.


I made this chicken salad again, this time for a wedding shower. I used Kraft Real Mayonnaise, Vlassic Baby Dills, and ONE yellow onion in the recipe. I used my food processor to chop all the ingredients and spread the chicken salad on wheat hoagie buns (cut them into 5ths). Every lady at the shower has asked for this recipe and what exact ingredients (BRANDS) I used. I made sure they all knew I only used one large yellow onion and not 6 onions like the recipe called for in the scaled to 50 version. It was the hit of the shower as far as the food selection. EVERY sandwich was eaten! I scaled the recipe for 50 servings and spread generous amounts on each hoagie bun then cut the sandwiches into 5 servings per bun. This is by far the BEST and most easy, tasty chicken salad I have ever made or tasted. I highly recommend using this recipe.
