This old-fashioned chicken salad makes a great no-cook summer dinner, whether spooned onto crisp lettuce leaves as a main-course salad or tucked between slices of toasted whole-grain bread for upscale chicken sandwiches.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbs. sour cream
  • 2 Tbs. Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbs. mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh tarragon
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. chopped pink peppercorns
  • 2 cups (12 oz./375 g) diced cooked chicken
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

In a bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mustard, mayonnaise, tarragon, honey and pink peppercorns. Fold in the chicken, celery, green onions and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately. Serves 2 to 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, Delicious and Flexible I love the honey/Dijon/tarragon flavor combination. It's delightful! It's also a very flexible recipe. I added a little apple and some pecans because I like extra crunch in my chicken salad, and it was delicious. This is a great base recipe to tinker with and build off of to your tastes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed the recipe a little and it was great! This recipe is really good, however I did change it a little. I was into the idea of using sour cream, rather than mayo as the creamy element in the chicken salad. When I tasted the mixture, I felt that mayo was too prominent so I added more sour cream. You may consider dropping the mayo all together (I think I will next time). I also added apple and reduced the amount of honey.
