  • 1 cup diced celery (about 3 stalks)

  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • 1/3 cup light mayo
  • 2 teaspoons freshlemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoons celery seed
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place the mayonnaises, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, celery seed and a few pinches of salt and pepper into a bowl. Whisk the mixture vigorously until thoroughly blended.
  2. Put the chicken, celery, sliced onion and olives into a large bowl, add the dressing and toss to combine. Check the salad for additional salt and pepper to taste and then serve immediately.
