Dressing for Chicken Salad

I don't enjoy mayonnaise, but have discovered there really is no equal for its binding quality in salads and spreads. Marvelous things happen when this dressing is allowed to sit, refrigerated, overnight. It develops a very silky texture, unlike the globiness of mayo and that mayonnaise-y smell disappears.

Flavorful Dressing for Chicken Salad

1/2 cup mayonnaise

2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

3 plump cloves garlic, crushed

1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped

Mix everything together and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight. Makes enough for about a pound of chicken, plus whatever fruits and vegetables you wish to add. Any combination of apples, grapes, celery, toasted sliced almonds, chopped red pepper, feta cheese, are all delicious.
