For 100 years, Hellmann’s has brought together the best ingredients – such as oil, vinegar and now cage-free eggs – to help bring out the best meals and moments to America’s tables. I personally grew up on Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise and to me and my family, there is NO substitute.

Grilled Chicken Pasta Salad

It’s always fresh, creamy and consistently delicious.To celebrate its 100th birthday, Hellmann’s is teaming up with celebrity chef Mario Batali to showcase how decades of delicious meals start with real, quality ingredients.

Mario put his own spin on a classic recipe for Chicken Pasta Salad with Green Olives and Raisins and it inspired me to create my own unique twist on his salad and enter the contest myself.

I opted to incorporate some of my favorite aromatic flavors like Kalamata olives, capers, sun dried tomatoes, fresh oregano and lemon; then used grilled chicken instead of sautéing it for that extra depth in flavor. You can also use leftover rotisserie chicken too to save some time.
