I received another survey from Influenster a few weeks ago to see if I qualified for their Hellmann’s #SqueezeMoreOut campaign and I ended up making it, so yay for free Mayonnaise!

So for this campaign, instead of receiving a themed VoxBox (like the “Go” Voxbox), I received a product to showcase.
The product I received was Hellmann’s Mayonnaise in their new squeeze bottle. Apparently, in 2014, 1,000 pounds of Hellmann’s Mayonnaise were stuck inside squeeze bottles, so they decided to redesign it. I know I personally can never get the ends of mayo out of squeeze bottles, or in the jars, I’m scraping my knuckles against the sides trying to dig the remainder out because I don’t like to waste, so I like the idea of using all of the product I paid for.
I know, ideally the bottle design is meant for squeezing on burgers or sandwiches, but I was in the mood for some chicken salad! So I made that recipe instead. Mayo is mayo in a recipe whether it comes in a squeeze bottle or jar, and I’m happy to report that the design helped get all the mayo out without splattering all over me.
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts - cooked and diced
- 1 stalk celery, chopped
- ½ onion, chopped
- 1 apple, peeled and chopped
- ⅓ cup raisins or dried cranberries
- ½ cup green grapes, halved
- ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ½ teaspoon curry powder
- 1 cup Mayonnaise (or, I used nearly all the Hellmann's Mayo Squeeze Bottle)
- ½ cup chopped pecans (optional)
- Mix together Mayo, Pepper, and Curry in a bowl
- Toss in the other ingredients and mix well
- Refrigerate for a few hours for flavors to marry
- Serve on bread, on a croissant, or on a bed of lettuce
The salad tasted great as always and it felt nice not to waste any mayo!
