Almond Tarragon Chicken Salad

Total Time

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. 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, 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
