I am a big fan of dill pickles and they go amazingly well in a creamy salad, like this chicken salad! This is a pretty simple chicken salad with a base of cooked and shredded chicken with celery, onions and plenty of diced dill pickles, along with fresh chopped dill! The dressing is a tangy mayonnaise and sour cream based dressing with juice from the pickle jar and some dijon mustard for extra tang. This dill pickle chicken salad is fabulous all by itself and it’s great in sandwiches, wraps, rolls, etc.
