The inspiration: Classic pineapple chicken salad – a recipe from 1955

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

Great new recipe idea for a grand old favorite. 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
