Loved this. I had a similar recipe that I lost about 3 yrs. ago and have been searching ever since for one like it. This one fit the bill. I did not add the pecans and used dried Tarragon. secret with using dried herbs is to cook them until they give off an aroma on the stove top. Next time will do with the pecans
Lemon-Tarragon Chicken Salad
When fresh tarragon isn't available, substitute 1 1/2 tsp. dried crushed tarragon.
