Can I make a chicken pasta salad without mayonnaise type thing?

dh on a diet. DD1 allergic to eggs.

I was thinking using lemon juice and olive oil instead of mayo.

i am using up a roasted chicken here.

Can you get to the shops? I use the egg free mayo (it's made from olive oil) as the real stuff makes me vomit.

do it with a viniagrette type dressing? I do a nice potato salad that's vinaigrette rather than mayo based.

with a bit of mustard in as well for some colour to the dressing.

i would etha buy a salad dressing sauce from the shop. or a salad dressing oil to go with the lemon juice instead of olive oil. i cant stand mayo of anykind.

I'd do it with a vinaigrette; nice vinegar (balsamic, raspberry or hte like), olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, basil or tarragon. Maybe with some cold pasta?

that's the one. Very nice too if you mix 1/2 and 1/2 with plain yoghurt.

A nice vinegarette on a potato salad rather than pasta is pretty good and much better for you.

I do a potato/honey/grainy mustard/sausage potato salad too that is officially my favourite all time salad1
