Great new recipe idea for a grand old favorite

Creamy Hellmann’s Mayonnaise “marries” the good flavors of chicken and pineapple… and you serve this salad hot or cold!

This tasty variation of chicken salad is equally good as a hearty hot dish or a cool and tempting summer salad! So easy to make, too — for you mix it with Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise. This is the mayonnaise that’s smoother and creamier because it’s made with whole eggs — whites, yolks, even extra yolks — beaten in. Do try it.
