    Used sweet pickle relish, not dill, a bit more mayo, family liked it, even the men...

    Threw most of this away. The pickle relish and swiss cheese was overwhelming. I really wanted to like this but it was not meant to be. No one else enjoyed it either. Waste of ingredients, time and money.

    This was a pretty good chicken salad. The dill was a bit heavy for me and my daughter did not care for it at all. I accidentally got mozzarella cheese instead of swiss, so the swiss might have balanced it out more.

    My husband loves swiss cheese so this was a must try. I added a bit of fresh dill weed and also a sliced tomato. It was good without the additions but my husband devoured it with the additions.

    Just wondering if this would work with ham instead of chicken.
