    I hate mayo, so I make mine with yogurt.
    Leftover cooked chicken, shredded (1 thigh)
    1/2 c full fat yogurt
    5-8 dill pickle chips, diced
    1 hardcooked egg, chopped
    1/4 apple
    2 tbsp pecans or walnuts, diced
    1/4- 1/2 celery stalk, diced
    1/5 bell pepper, diced
    10 or so blueberries

    Mix it all up and serve on top of salad.

    I'm still not happy with the homemade mayonnaises that I've tried making. So, for chicken salad, I'd opt for a recipe that wouldn't use it such as a Thai chicken salad: http://amoderngal.com/2009/06/15/thai-chicken-salad/

    I use a mix of mayo and greek yogurt, then the following:

    1 shredded rotisserie chicken
    1 diced granny smith apple
    1 cup seedless red grapes, halved
    1 cup walnuts
    1 Tbs curry powder
    1 tsp fresh lemon juice
    1 cup chopped cilantro

    The walnuts and curry powder provide powerful anti-inflammatory compounds (Omega-3 and curcumin), the grapes provide resveratrol, the lemon juice Vitamin C, and there are antioxidents in apples too.

    I have made both tuna and chicken salad by substituting guacamole for mayo.
