Delicious Dill Chicken Salad

One of the reasons I love to cook is because food can bring joy and comfort to others. A few years back, my mother-in-law was suffering terribly from cancer treatments. She hadn't eaten anything substantial in weeks, and we couldn't seem to find anything that appealed to her. 

Then one day I impulsively grabbed a chicken salad sandwich as I left to visit her. I was sure she would turn it down, but for some reason I brought it anyway. And then ... she ate it! The whole thing! It was a small miracle – her face brightened up, we had a wonderful chat, and it is a memory I will never forget. 

So this week, make a memory. Bring a chicken salad treat to a friend or a neighbor. And save some for yourself – it's delish!


Delicious Dill Chicken Salad


  • 1 pkt. Dill Pickle Dip Mix
  • ½ cup olive oil mayonnaise
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups cooked, chopped chicken
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup dried cranberries


In a large bowl, combine the first 3 ingredients; remove half the dip and refrigerate for another use. Add all remaining ingredients; stir until blended. Refrigerate 2 hours; serve on buns or a bed of lettuce.

Tips and Hints

  • You can easily substitute canned chicken for the fresh stuff.
  • If your dried cranberries have been hanging out in your cabinet a little past their freshness date, steep them in a cup of boiling water for a couple of minutes. Drain and pat dry.
  • Feel free to substitute pecans or almonds for the sunflower seeds.
  • Toss in some chopped celery for extra crunch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great chicken salad! At first I wasn't too sure about a dill pickle chicken salad but after having used the Dill Pickle Dip Mix in potato salad I thought I would give this a try and I am so glad I did - it is fantastic! I made sandwiches for a crowd on a picnic and everyone loved them. Will definitely make these again.
