  5. My family enjoys chicken salads and I created this receipe as a healthy, light , one dish dinner that is especially delicious on warm summer evenings. This recipe has also been a big hit at showers and parties. Hellman's has always been my choice of mayonnaise for its creaminess and tangy flavor.
