I used to get this salad at the deli in Publix supermarket, it was around six dollars a pound. It is so easy to prepare at home. Tastes great on crescent rolls or just about any bread of choice, toasted or plain.
- 1 boneless skinless chicken breast, cooked chopped and cooled
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise (if salad is too dry you can add more)
- 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
- 1⁄2 cup sliced almonds
- Combine all ingredients.
- Cover and chill (I like to make this so that it can chill for a couple hours, so that the flavors meld) Serve on bread or rolls of choice, or with crackers.
A very good salad. I made it just like you directed, no substitutions. This makes a great savory, creamy sandwich spread. I suppose if you wanted to eat it as a salad, you could add maybe a chopped apple for a different flavor and texture. I really liked this, and I will use the recipe again. Thanks for sharing.
Wow! I'm THRILLED that I stumbled upon your recipe. I've always been an avid Publix shopper and it wasn't until I was recently on vacation in Pensacola that I discovered the Almond Tarragon Chicken Salad -- in the Publix deli. We bought one small container of it and took it, along with other meal items back to the hotel for an afternoon lunch. I immediately feel in love with it! I wanted more! The next day, I went back to Publix and bought at least 4 more containers. And since arriving home from vacation, I can't stay away from the deli area, as I'm always buying 6-8 containers each week. I made your recipe tonight and I'm completely AMAZED as how consistent the taste is....WOW! I made LOTS of it....now, I'm wondering if it would be okay to freeze, for those times when I crazy it, but don't wish to be in the kitchen? Thanks again.....sooooooo delicious! Jason Cleveland, TN
