Salads

Chicken Salad with Fresh Tarragon & Dried Cranberries

21

There are many things I like about this recipe...first off is the fact that I made it, instead of getting it from a store. That's not to say that there's anything wrong with chicken salad from a store, but I always like to have control of my chicken pieces, which equates to no fat, grizzle or bones. I also love all the flavors going on in this recipe, and think I have served this three times in the past number of months. Lastly, I appreciate that it's not overly "goopy&q

4
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 cup mayonnaise
3 tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
4 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups diced apples (I use gala or Fuji)
1 cup diced celery
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Whisk together mayonnaise, tarragon, lemon zest and lemon juice in a large bowl. Stir in chicken, apples, celery, pecans, dried cranberries and red onion just until blended. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Cover and chill 2-24 hours.
