Tarragon Chicken Salad

I'm really funny about my chicken salad, very particular you could say. There are very few chicken salads that I can say I actually really like. But, I loooove the tarragon chicken salad from Christopher's RunAway Gourmay carts.

We had tarragon leftover from the Bistecca Con Salsa delle Erbe Hubby made awhile back and I wanted to use it up before it went bad. I found the basic recipe for this over at the blog Framed.  I made a few changes to lighten up the recipe and I also added grapes.

Not surprisingly the tarragon is delicious in this salad. I love how the tarragon works with the grapes.  The walnuts also give a wonderful crunch to this salad. The ratio of mayo and sour cream is right on.

I spooned the salad over half of one of those 100% whole wheat 100 calorie thin sandwich buns and it was perfect!
