Although there is nothing wrong with a tablespoon of mayonnaise in your sandwich, some people just can’t stomach the flavor. I’ve made this recipe for those people. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I found the best kitchen hack while making this. Short on time, I boiled one large chicken breast. Instead of shredding by hand, I threw the cooked chicken along with the dressing ingredients in my Bosch mixer with the whisks attached. After a quick whirl, I added the chopped veggies and parsley to the bowl to complete the chicken salad. So fast. So easy. So yummy. And fewer dishes! Also, I have added 1/4 Cup chopped walnuts for a little crunch and it's amazing.
