    MamaJ's Note:

    This is my favorite chicken salad. It is quick to prepare and although it contains mayonnaise it has a light, refreshing flavor. I am always asked for the recipe when I serve it. Enjoy!

      So yummy and refreshing! I had fresh tarragon that I had to use up so I thought I'd try this. Definitely a repeater!

      Enjoyed the fresh lemon juice/zest. I only had dried tarragon on hand but I am sure it would be even that much tastier with the fresh. Thanks Mama! Roxygirl
