This sandwich is amazing! Seriously. Full of fresh flavor and healthy nutrients, how could anyone not love this glorious spread?! (Just a side note - my young children loved it too!)

2. Add in your mayonaise and stir until well blended.
3. Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir until everything is mixed in nicely. 
4. Spread on sliced bread or crackers if you prefer.
5. Enjoy!!
 (Don't be afraid to play around with the flavors in this recipe! If you like more dill, by all means add more dill! You get the idea.)
