What a great combination, the tarragon goes so well with the egg, and the sour cream was a real twist on the usual mayo.
I loved it, and piled it high on hot buttered granary toast for a real lunch time treat. Deelish!!!

This egg salad is different than the ones I'm used too. I was not sure with the taste of tarragon and I used dried. Maybe I should have used only 1/2 tsp of dried tarragon. Instead of the sour cream, I'll use light mayonnaise. I liked the shallots in it. I used 1 shallot, it was probably more than 3 tablespoons. Thanks Swissms :) Made for 123 hit wonders

Wow, this was really tasty! At first I was a bit concerned with the amount of tarragon (I had to use dried) but it was perfect. Not overpowering at all. I scaled this down to 1 sandwich and since I used my own bread (Spelt Muesli Sourdough Bread) which has smaller slices, I had quite a lot of filling. So I simply made open-faced sandwiches. I followed your recipe with two minor changes: I didnt cook the eggs the way you described it because I had already cooked them earlier. Also I didnt use sour cream but cream cheese. All worked very well.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this gorgeous recipe with us, swissms! I will certainly make this again.

Very nice sandwich. I am surprised at how well the anise like flavor of tarragon goes so well with the eggs. I simply topped mine with romaine lettuce. Will make again, thanks for sharing :)
