Chicken Salad with Grapes & Tarragon

Chicken Salad on bunI’ve never really been a huge fan of chicken salad, mostly because I don’t like a ton of mayonnaise.  But on a trip to Boston last summer, I was converted. I ate the most amazing chicken salad sandwich ever at Sel de la Terre.  Here is my healthy version. Enjoy it with a glass of cold white wine.

Ingredients:

2 cups cooked and diced chicken breast (skin removed)

1/2 cup diced red or white onion

1 cup halved seedless grapes

1/4 cup vegan (or regular) mayonnaise

1/4 cup Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 Tbsp chopped fresh tarragon

1 Tbsp chopped parsley

2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives

handful of fresh spinach or other leafy greens

salt & pepper to taste

1 baguette cut into 4 inch pieces

Directions:

1. Combine chicken, grapes and onions in a medium bowl.

2. Mix mayo, yogurt, lemon juice, tarragon, parsley, chives, salt and pepper in a smaller bowl.

3. Pour dressing over chicken, stir to combine.

4. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to marinate flavors.

5. Serve on a baguette with some fresh spinach leaves.
