Tarragon, what is that? I worked briefly in a Deli and they added Tarragon to their Chicken Salad. I tried it with my recipe and have had yummy success and rewarding comments.

This Chicken salad recipe is really just a base. You can add a mariad of different things. fresh grapes or apples for a more fancy luncheon salad or keep it simple for sandwiches. Simple and basic. Let your tastebuds be your guide... It's all about the Tarragon. Try adding it to your recipe, I believe you will be pleasantly surprised.
