Now, my old favorite chicken salad has tarragon added. Yum!
I wanted a French tarragon plant, but what I found at the garden centers was Mexican tarragon.
According to the Bonnie Plants info..click here, Mexican tarragon is a good substitute for French tarragon, and it grows well in warm climates. Maybe that's why I couldn't find the French kind...too hot for it here...Ya think?
Here's my chicken salad recipe...it's really basic:
2 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
I bake mine in the oven. Sometimes, if I'm in a hurry, I use rotisserie chicken.
1 stalk celery, chopped
Mayonnaise of your choice...about a half cup, or the amount that makes the consistency you like.
1 cup seedless red or green grapes cut in half.
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon leaves, and extra for garnish.
Serve on a bed of Spring greens.
Another way I've started using tarragon, is tarragon wine vinegar.
I tried a couple of brands, but Maitre Jacques is the brand I like best. And, I'm not compensated for mentioning it. :)
I just sprinkle a little of the tarragon wine vinegar on sliced English cucumbers, add a sprinkle of sea salt and a little black pepper...and decorate with a few sprigs of tarragon and a pesticide-free flower...if I have one. :)
There you are...the only two recipes I have for using tarragon, but if y'all have a favorite recipe, I'd love to try it.
