You know what herb is underrated? Dill. Dill is pretty dill-icious... ha ha ha. See what I did there.
In other news, I made homemade mayonnaise! What seems like an impossible culinary feat is actually really easy. I followed Nom Nom Paleo's recipe, linked here; you probably have all of the ingredients in your pantry. Homemade mayo is cheap AF, plus it literally takes 5 minutes to whip up. Be warned: you may need to call in some whisking reinforcements because there's a good chance that your forearm will cramp up. You could also just use store bought mayonnaise (Chosen Foods is my go-to) and save yourself a few minutes!
Apple-Dill Chicken Salad
1 pound chicken- cooked and shredded
1/4 sweet onion chopped finely
1 gala apple chopped
3 tbsp dijon mustard
1/3 cup mayo- or more depending on how much mayo you like
1/4 cup dill roughly chopped
2 tbsp chives chopped
salt & pepper to taste
1 tbsp pickle juice or 2 tbsp relish optional but recommended because pickles;)
Cook chicken so it's shreddable- 12 minutes in the instant pot- then let cool.
Add in all the ingredients and incorporate so the chicken is evenly coated with mayo.
Season to taste- feel free to add more mayonnaise if you want a creamier chicken salad.
I swear this chicken salad is like a fine wine, it tastes better as it sits and gets all cozy in the fridge. It's delicious. Enjoy!
