This is a very easy and good tasting chicken salad. We really liked the sour cream and tarragon flavor. I found the flavor was even better the next day. I served in a purple cabbage leaf, and it was very pretty.

This is wonderful. The sour cream is the secret weapon in this recipe. For years I have been trying to figure out what the missing flavor was in a tarragon chicken salad recipe I used to eat at a now closed lunch place. Since I had not eaten it in several years, I was having a hard time recreating the taste. Well, once I tasted this recipe, I realized this was the taste I had been missing. This is a smooth, creamy tasty chicken salad.

The version I use has 5 cups of cooked shredded chicken, 3/4 cup sour cream, 3/4 cup mayo, 1 whole cup of minced celery, 1/4 cup of minced fresh tarragon, without any need for salt or pepper. The huge amount of celery adds a crunchy, refreshing texture to an already light and smooth flavour. Fabulous at on a hot summer day.
