I wish for 10 stars for this winner!!! The dressing is TDF! The flavors of the salad meld beautifully. This is a guest-worthy recipe! Makes my mouth water just remembering lunch today!

Delicious! I absolutely adore the flavor of French Tarragon, and this recipe marries it perfectly with the light onion and garlic in the dressing. We loved the crunch from both the walnuts (which I toasted) and the celery, and the bit of sweetness from the grapes. For my own dietary reasons, I had to leave out the yogurt, so instead used 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise, two teaspoons of rice vinegar and one teaspoon of water. This gave just a bit of tang as the yogurt would have, and I don't think it really changed the texture too much, though perhaps made it a wee bit more runny. Nonetheless, a 5-star recipe all around. Thanks, A&A's mum!

Perfect in every respect just exactly as posted! And very easy, too. I made the dressing early in the day, cut the meat up, and mixed the two together. I love tarragon and walnuts are a great addition to this salad. I served ours with homemade bread. Thanks for sharing a keeper! Made for "Please Review My Recipe" tag.

I chose this for a "tea party" lunch with my mom and aunt/uncle. I used thin sliced Pepperidge Farm bread for half and dense German bread for the rest. My mom loved the sandwiches and never tired of the leftovers, even three days later! Thanks so much, Aaliyah & Aaron's mum, for posting! Roxygirl

This chicken salad is fantastic. I loved the walnuts. My grapes were red seedless and I just tossed them right in the salad mixture. Great recipe. Thanx!
