Super Fancy Tarragon Chicken Salad

Tarragon has this magical unicorn-like power of making anything it adorns taste fancy. I can’t exactly put my finger on it, but I always feel like I’m at high tea with the Queen when I’m eating it. Maybe it’s just me, but I doubt it.

This tarragon chicken salad is so fresh, unique, and satisfying. It would be so perfect for a romantic hillside picnic or a fancy wine date with girlfriends on the beach. Heck, I’d even serve it at high tea – you know, because it’s fancy.


2 c. shredded or diced chicken (rotisserie chicken works great!)

½ c. mayonnaise

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

2 green onions, sliced

2 Tbsp. fresh tarragon, chopped

Salt and pepper, to taste

Combine all ingredients (except for salt and pepper) into a large bowl and mix together. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine. 

Serve on sandwiches, with salads or all alone!
